People always seem taken aback when I say I write GLBTQ romance. They either don't know how to respond, didn't realize there such a thing *existed,* or they think I write porn.
I'll be the first to admit, some of my books are heavy on the sex and light on the substance. Why? Because I like to write about sex!
But most of my stories carry a romantic theme. Whether it's the fated-to-be-together werewolf Calliph and werecat Mateo from "Omarati," or the older man David and the hot little stud muffin Brandon from "A Good Bargain," or even the Human William and the native alien Intugu from "Torn" in the "Simply Smut" anthology - everyone falls in love.
Why? Because love is thrilling. It's fun, scary, horrific, uplifting, joyous, sad, depressing, adventurous, lazy, hot, passionate, lukewarm - every emotion possible is wrapped up in love.
To that end, I like writing romances. I like seeing my characters find their "one" - I like watching them struggle to overcome obstacles so they can be together. I like that warm and fuzzy feeling when they find their happily ever after.
What about you?? Why do you like romances so darn much??

****PLEASE BE AWARE: I write GLBTQ romance. GLBTQ stands for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer. This means my works feature same sex relationships AND same sex sexual acts. If being associated with that isn't your cup of tea, kindly pass on to the next blog in the hop and leave the spot open for someone else. Thank you.****
