Books, food, and naps. These are the things guaranteed to make me happy.
Growing up on a steady diet of books in a house where reading everything from the classics, to history, to all kinds of novels was encouraged, I never tired of finding fabulous books in all genres, my favourites being science fiction and fantasy. But hardly any merged romance and SciFi/Fantasy. I dreamed of the day when the starship pilot, or prince, would not only get the girl, but I would get to see what made them both tick, making it a major plot line.
Despairing of finding the books I wanted to read, I decided to combine my two loves and write them myself. I love writing both Alpha and Beta heroes, all whom I torture and make fall to their knees before their heroine and beg for mercy.
My mother had a steady stream of romance novels she shared in a never-ending loop with friends. One day when I was fourteen I decided I would read one. I was hooked.
I live in the coldest area of Queensland, Australia (and believe me, winters are ICY!), and harbor a strange love for UGG boots. K- and J-Pop. and most recently, Korean and Japanese dramas feature heavily in my home, especially when drafting my novels, drawing inspiration for my heroes from the music videos, movies, and anime.
