Hello and happy Tuesday. So glad you took the time to join us. It means so much!
Here is this week’s challenge:
Do you remember the first romance book you read? Tell us about it. Or tell us about the book that made you want to write romance.
That’s an easy one. They are one and the same. Years ago, I had never really read a romance novel, although I was an avid reader. That is until a friend of mine lent me a copy of “The Flame and The Flower” by Kathleen Woodiwiss. I was immediately swept away into a different era, another place and into the lives of two fascinating people. Their relationship began with a misunderstanding and they faced conflicts, but in the end, they lived happily ever after. I loved it!
I then bought every one of Ms. Woodiwiss’s books and I was captivated every time. She created worlds I could visit, and people I wanted to meet.
And I knew I wanted to do that, too. I had stories to tell, characters I wanted to create and history I wanted to walk through. And so began my research into eras and historical events that would set the backdrop for my heroes and heroines. And as it all came to life, I knew my passion was directed where it should be.
The world is more than difficult these days and that’s why a respite is so important. Books, romance novels especially, offer a place to go when, as Wordsworth so eloquently put it, the ‘world is too much with us’.
So I will keep writing and telling my tales and hope when you jump into my stories, you get what you need.
Now let’s hop over to the wonderful Brenda Margriet and hear about her first romance. But first…Check this out!!!!
