Writer, artist, doctor and English teacher, also expert at leading quadruple lives. I am pretty sure aliens dropped me here when I was born, but can't find direct evidence of that.
I write so I can read the stories I'd like to read. As simple as that. I invent my stories with the heart, not the mind. You may like them, you may not; but you'll surely feel the "spark" in them, the life in the characters, the freedom that is hard to define with words. Because I really, really like to write. Writing what you like is so much fun, and you can clearly see it when the author enjoys themselves. That"spark" is what I seek everywhere, no matter how famous the writer is or how sharp their writing skills are.
Why paranormal romance, erotic romance, detectives, mature young adult and romantic comedy? I would love to refer you to Stephen King's excellent prologue of Night Shift. When people asked him why did he write horror, he replied "Why do you assume I have a choice?"
