We can’t marry because of…Yes, we can. It’s not an issue

One of the wonderful things about romantic fiction is that you can create the kind of relationship you want, the kind you’ve always dreamed of. In the case of Tan and Sinna, a mature one, filled with honesty. In this tale, almost all of the tension originates from outside sources. Not that they don’t have … Continue reading We can’t marry because of…Yes, we can. It’s not an issue

When you already love a woman to bits — and then she introduces you to a new sexual concept

Saints and Sinnas CoverOne reason I love reading and writing romance novels is because you get a glimpse behind the curtain. At least, in the books I like you do. The author will let you know what the man and woman are thinking — even if the hero and heroine remain oblivious to each others thoughts, which is often part of the plot. Continue reading “When you already love a woman to bits — and then she introduces you to a new sexual concept”

Side characters make the world go ’round — and make a story soooo good

I love side characters. They’re like the supporting characters in movies or TV shows. They’re colorful, they make things interesting, and they’re wonderful tools to advance a story forward — or they should be. In this blog, which picks up where last week’s left off, I offer more from Sinna’s visit from Lani and Tommy. You may recall they were participating in her first appearance on a South Korean talk show, and it was going very well. LOL Continue reading “Side characters make the world go ’round — and make a story soooo good”

You take the bad with the good, but you should always push it aside for love

Saints and Sinnas CoverI have an old friend, one of my oldest friends, actually, and he loves when I tell him stories from my books. He says they feel familiar, like he’s seen it in a movie, and he always shouts out the next part: “He died!” No, fool, I laughed recently. “Few people die in my books.” Though I do have some things planned… Continue reading “You take the bad with the good, but you should always push it aside for love”

You’ve gotta admit, these K-pop bromances are a little suspicious

Saints and Sinnas CoverIt feels weird to be working on a book pre-George Floyd. It’s not like the #blacklivesmatter movement wasn’t a thing before I started this story, but Floyd’s unintentional martyrdom has kicked the world into a different kind of angst. It’s crazy right now. The ‘rona is still out there, and race in America is like a powder keg. Continue reading “You’ve gotta admit, these K-pop bromances are a little suspicious”

Sometimes even a fabulous new lover can’t offer as much comfort as a good old girlfriend

Saints and Sinnas CoverThey say you only need a few good friends, and I agree. Actually the old saying says you only need two, and that’s just in case one dies, but that’s a bit much…lol Friends are wonderful! Especially old friends. They know you better because you have shared history and experience. The caring can be deeper, and a good friend, old or new, will protect you like no other.
