Reality becomes fantasy, or is it that imagination turns into real life experience? I am fascinated by how frequently the line between reality and fantasy is crossed in my writing practice. Writing romance novels is an astonishing way to play with something from real life and turn it into something fun, playful and perhaps a bit twisted. How amusing it is to be able to take an idea and into it into something real like a living character. My characters all experience real life joy and pain, reinvention, survival and victory. They share the process of evolution and expansion.
The places that I write about are all real places where I have lived or visited, from the beaches of Malibu to the Islands in Fiji and destinations in between, including the monastery in Dr. Selfish! I am an active member of the Romance Writers of America.
While researching for fiction and non-fiction books, I come across amazing topics; ranging from the chemistry of love, to the latest technology in anti-aging, to the psychological makings of a serial killer. I love to share what I learn in my research with my readers!
Naturally love and passion are at the root of my tales, after all isn’t that what life is all about? I hope you are as entertained by my books as I was in writing them. Viva la passion!
