Passion comes from the soul, and writing holds a special place in mine. Passion for writing keeps me up in front of my word processor long past the dictates of my better judgment. It draws energy from every cell of my body, allowing me to paint images with words in ways that continually amaze me.
Romance, or rather writing romance, became an obsession late in life. The urge to create with words had bogged down from years of building a career in the visual arts, and then from another stretch of time devoted to raising a child. When it resurfaced abruptly, it surprised the heck out of me by insisting it be in a genre other than the sci-fi/fantasy and heavy social commentary of my youth. Romance was something I had never attempted, yet it clicked with me in a way I still do not fathom.
The Rocky Road series is about one woman’s journey through trauma and tragedy, and how the power of love keeps her moving forward. It touches on the sensitive topic of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the different ways in which people deal with wounds that never heal, yet somehow find strength and courage to love again.
