I had a lot of first loves. When I was a little kid, I fell in love with Simba from the Lion King and then Aladdin. I had crushes on the boys in my kindergarten class that changed from week to week, crushes on the boys in first grade, second grade and third grade. Is it any wonder I became a romance novelist?

Here’s what you need to know about being a writer. You have to get up. Because no matter how long it takes you, no matter how battle-weary you feel, no matter how many times you’ve cried this year, if you don’t get up, that’s game over.
Meka is the perfect example of how Twitter friends can become real-life friends! I got the chance to chat with her about the romance and intimacy between married couples, a colorful Google history and her new release, Anything Once!
My favorite genre is binge reading stories from the library, spending all day in bed swearing I’ll stop after one more chapter, developing massive, unhealthy crushes on fictional characters. My favorite genre is whatever I can get my hands on.
I got to sit down with Sophia Ryan to chat writing, inspiration and her new release, A Cowboy's Forgiveness!
It is my absolutely pleasure to sit down with Desiree Holt to talk about her new book, Hide and Seek. I got to meet Desiree in Florida at this summer's Romance Writers of America conference, and we fangirled over how amazing our shared editor, Rebecca, is. Desiree is an inspiring writer and delightful person, and I'm excited to share her work with you!
