I was ten when I first watched an old movie version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and loved it! Movies led to books, which led to writing and after a good long while, publishing. I wrote sweet Regency romance for Kensington for 19 years and recently fell in love with paranormal, although I’ve always had a thing for vampires. I currently write paranormal romance for St. Martin’s Press but I self-publish as well. Building an online platform has been an enormous but rewarding challenge. I think all the changes in publishing will alter how authors approach the business going forward and I for one am thrilled to have so many options.
I’ve been in love with vampires for a very long time and years ago, under the pseudonym Valerie King, I wrote a Regency vampire novella for Kensington that prompted a fan to tell me she hoped it would be made into a movie! How’s that for an accolade?!? But that was long before there was such a thing as a ‘Paranormal’ market…and for all that time vampires have been in my blood! Yes…pun intended, or…don’t I wish!
Some of my favorite writers include Gena Showalter, Lara Adrian, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and JR Ward. If you’ve read and loved these authors as I have, then you can guess that my Guardians of Ascension series is centered around powerful warrior vampires and an ongoing battle between good-and-evil.
In addition to these authors, other favorites are: Laurell K. Hamilton who created probably my all-time favorite vampire in Jean-Claude, non? I also love Patricia Brigg’s paranormal work and I’m hoping one day she’ll develop vampire Stefan who has a wonderfully dark aura and who seems as captivated with Mercy as her werewolves are. Kresley Cole wrote one of my favorite vampires in Sebastien, so of course I now have a cat named Sebastien.
