* Congratulations to JCP. You have won a free ebook of Sprinkled with Love! *
I’ve wanted to be an author since I was little and asked Santa for a typewriter…yes, I said typewriter. I was tickled pink when I got it. I immediately started to write a book of poetry that went something like Roses are red…Violets are blue…
It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I got my hands on my very first romance. From then on, I couldn’t get enough of them. In my mind, it confirmed the fact that I wanted to be a romance author when I grew up.
Fast forward to 2007 when my husband and I decided that if I was going to follow my writing dreams, I should go for it. So I traded in my position as a statistician where I played with numbers, formulas and spreadsheets all day for an opportunity to let my imagination run free.
I started off entering contests…lots of RWA contests that had a Harlequin editor as final judge. I learned so much from that experience and I thank each and every one of you who volunteer your time to judge those contests. It definitely didn’t happen overnight and it did have some setbacks along the way, but finally my dream came true.
I love how the romance subgenres span historical, paranormal, contemporary and so much more. And best of all, romances come with a happy ending. With so much unhappiness in the world, it’s nice to turn to romances where you know eventually the hero and heroine will find their happily-ever-after. Such is the case for Avery and Jillian in Sprinkled with Love, but their journey is not without a few twists, turns and bumps.
I’m so thrilled to be a part of the Tule team with my Montana Born debut, Sprinkled with Love. Take a bachelor bake-off, one ornery cowboy and a matchmaking cat and it made for a really fun book to write. And did I mention the delicious cookies, pies and cakes. Oh my!
Speaking of cookies, yes, I did bake a batch of the Montana Cowboy Cookies. After all, you do have to make sacrifices for your art, right? And I didn’t hear the husband complaining when he helped me eat them. ;-)
I hope you enjoy Sprinkled with Love as much as I enjoyed writing it. And just remember, it’s calorie-free. ;-)
