I’ve always been a storyteller and passionate reader. Though in the last few years, I struggled to relate to romantic fiction. I swear I’m not going to touch another romance featuring a hero and heroine in their twenties or early thirties. I want to read stories about people I can relate to. Life doesn’t end at thirty-five, people! The fact is, women and men who are past fifty, sixty, and yes, even seventy have not stopped loving, longing, dreaming of adventure, and–dare I say it–having sex.
So this is the group of people I am writing about in our cottage in windy Wellington, with Steffie the rescue dog at my feet. Don’t they say you should write about what you know? Here they come, my heroes and heroines, the gray foxes, like George Clooney, Judy Dench, and Jane Fonda. I could go on and on, but you’ll get the picture.
If I’m not sitting curled up in a cozy corner reading books from fellow authors, I’m writing. Armed with a box of chocolates, a laptop, a cup of Earl Grey or the occasional glass of Merlot, I’m having fun letting the characters in my books overcome (dangerous) obstacles I create for them to find their Happy Ever After. And finding it, they will. After all, it’s romance!
