Several years ago I read an interview with a prolific author, and though I can’t remember which one, something she said really stuck with me. She said that her characters told the story… that they were in charge of the book, not her. Frankly, I thought her comment was ridiculous with a capital R. I…

My Love Affair with the Romance Genre

By Jenna Sutton | Feb 17, 2015 | 0 Comments

I’m an avid reader, and I have been since I learned my ABCs. I remember going to the book fair at my elementary school and begging my mom to let me add “just one more” to the stack of books she already held. My parents had to watch their budget, yet she always said “yes”…
