1. I read my first romance novel at the age of 13, it was Johanna Lindsey’s Fires of Winter. My grandparents owned a Greyhound Bus depot and after spending spring break with them I took the bus from Okeechobee back to Winter Haven. My Grandma had taken me to a used bookstore where I picked it up for $.50 and I read it all the way home. I think if the driver hadn’t been friends with my grandparents’ I might have missed my stop. :)
4. My first big-time promotion was a billboard in Times’ Square for my first Silhouette Bombshell title Night Life. This book was different than the romances I had written before. Told only in the heroine’s point-of-view and it was action. I loved writing fight scenes and I was thrilled beyond measure to see my cover on a big jumbotron. Click here to check it out!
5. The first time I wrote a blog I was pretty sure most people would just ignore it. I really didn’t feel like I had anything to say that would be interesting. But then I started blogging bi-monthly with the Jaunty Quills and I found that the blog readers didn’t think I was crazy or boring. And I loved interacting with everyone on the blog. Learning new things about them and myself as I read their comments. Click here to visit Jaunty!
