Why Paranormal Romance?

Why did I choose Paranormal Romance for starting my writing career?

I grew up watching the classic monster movies (on reruns, of course) and reading epic stories such as Beowulf, The Iliad and The Odyssey, Le Morte de Arthur, and faery tale collections by the Brothers Grimm. Each sparked my imagination and has fueled my writer’s soul.

Vampires and werewolves, dragons and wizards, faeries and trolls, angels and demons, ghosts and goblins, enchantments and curses. The good, bad, and the hideously ridiculous. I can’t get enough. Call me a paranormal groupie.

Yep, I’m the gal who’ll creep down the squeaky, rickety stairs with a dying flashlight in a blackout to investigate the specter haunting the basement. Oh, my heart would be tha-dumping against my ribcage, but it would be from excitement, not fear.

It’s no wonder that I chose the paranormal romance genre to launch my aspiring author’s career. It combines my love for writing with my love of the mystical, magickal, mayhem that thrives in the moonlight. And, the romance part, well, it’s like the marshmallows in rocky road ice cream. It makes something good, scrumptilicious. What’s not to love about that?
