Posted on 11. Jul, 2016 by in Uncategorized

I didn’t always want to be a romance writer. To be honest, I didn’t even admit that I read romance books. I was a closet romance reader. If anyone asked what my favorite book genre was, I would say it was Sci Fi/Fantasy, which is mostly true. When I want to go on a book […]
