*AJ grabs a water bottle, dons a forehead sweatband and joins Rachel on the wooded trail.* Hi, Rachel! Great day for a run and an interview, huh? So tell me and all your fans out there, with the amount of success you've had in your writing career, do you stick to one sub-genre of romance or write across genre lines?
I write across the lines except for paranormal - my imagination just doesn't stretch to it, I'm afraid! This year I have had two romantic suspense novels published with Harlequin Superromance (second one coming in Aug.), a Victorian romance with eKensington and a romantic comedy with Omnific Publishing. The variety keeps the work fresh for me and my readers, hopefully. LOL!
I couldn’t agree with you more. Fresh sub-genre equals fresh ideas. *AJ repeatedly plucks the front of her t-shirt in an effort to dry the sweat on her cheeks.* So, wow, you’re a busy girl. What are you working on right now?
I am writing the first draft of what will be the fourth book in my ongoing series with Harlequin Superromance. It is a 2014 Christmas release which I’m super excited about because I've always wanted to write a Christmas-set story and it's finally happening! I'm also working on a new plot idea and outline to send to my Kensington editor. This will be book three for Kensington and they are all linked through secondary characters becoming protagonists in the following book. I am SO enjoying writing the Victorian era right now :)
Right now, it would have to be Superman. Why? How can any of us not think of Henry Cavill and not want a date. Yummy!!
AGREED! Gimme more Henry any day!! Okay and what would be the five top words your best friends would use to describe you.
