The question makes me smile, because the truth is? I've never considered writing anything else. I've been in love with love ever since I discovered the Nancy Drew series and cared more about the Ned Nickerson appearances than I did the mystery.

I write love stories because I want to make other people feel the way I do at the end of a Disney movie. Or when Bill Pullman gives Sandra Bullock that look in While You were Sleeping. Or when I re-read Lisa Kleypas's Wallflower series, or Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Ain't She Sweet. Or during any of the Mr. Darcy declarations.

I write love stories because I believe there's magic in happily-ever-after, and because I believe having the courage to read and write what we enjoy makes us powerful.

I often get asked why I decided to write romance.
