I've been creative writing all my life, though with various haitus(es) along the way. IFrom 2010 I started this blog and enjoyed sharing writing and other information with everyone. illness and bereavement supplied the more recent hiatus.

Romance / YA

My Romance Writing Journey and links to my romantic prose pieces:

In my youth I was forever imagining romantic scenarios.
I have learned that: Category romance is one big clich√© because they are all the same. HOWEVER, what makes one better than another is how the author 

In the 1990's I submitted a manuscript to Mills and Boon, for which I actually received feedback rather than the standard rejection letter, which was encouraging. I'm afraid I did 
      not follow this up with my second MS as I had only written 3 chapters and life got in the way.

I started this blog in 2010. I love Literary Fiction and Realistic Fiction and Chick Lit; Children's & YA and I'm a sucker for well written Romance, but which should I write?

     My current WIP is a chicklit, realistic fiction, suspence novel, laced with romance.

I began participating in Romantic Friday Writers Challenges, which honed my romantic writing skills for which I am delighted to say have been awarded the Featured Writer 
          Badge for these entries:

Other Romance Pieces:

Some of the Romance Authors I have so far enjoyed:

Carla Cassidy
'Wanted Body Guard'

Beth Cornelison
'The Prodigal Wife'
Nicole Burnham
'Going to the Castle'
Teresa Southwick'It Takes Three'
Stephanie Meyer
'Twilight' Series
Kate Hardy
'Where the Heart is'

My eShort story, Ultimate Sacrifice,
which though not a traditional romance,
has romantic elements.


Young Adult Literature

I have always enjoyed losing myself in a good story,
a concept that seems to epitomize Young Adult and Middle Grade Fiction.

Of course the fabulous Harry Potter series by J K Rowling spans these two age genres.

Other favourites are:
Frank Cotterill Boyce; Patrick Ness; Stephanie Meyer

Have you read John Lenahan's Shadowmagic?

Naturally my hope is to capture something of that magic and adventure in my own writing.
