Lucy O'Dell was born and raised in Texas and, though she lived elsewhere for a brief stint, she ended up right back in her home state where she's able to do what she loves best: write. She enjoys awkward flirting scenes as much as well executed witty banter because after all, isn't real life just alternating scenes of awkward and wit? Her romances tend to be explicitly erotic . . . or, that is to say her characters' romances tend to be explicitly erotic, but happily ever after or at least happy for now is guaranteed.
