IT WAS ROMANCE FIRST. I caught the romance bug as a teenager, but then my hormones must have kicked in.
I don't know about other authors of romantic fiction for adults, erotica or, as I prefer to think of it - Romantica, but it just crept up on me. From being a romance reader, I crossed that invisible line and sought heat in my fiction. When I became a writer I just couldn't keep the heat out.
The lovely Robert Baker, who runs The Romance Bloke site asked me to write an article about how I see my work. If you have a mind to, please pop over and have a look at the article. The trip is worth it to dscover a whole wealth of articles, reviews and expert opinions on his great site.
