What made you become a writer of romance novels?
Since I asked the question, I tried to pin down my own answer to it and wasn’t all that successful.
At some point, I knew I wanted to become one (a writer of romance novels, in case you forgot what I was going on and on about) and added sitting on the bleachers, waiting in the car, and lunchtime to my nighttime writing exercises. Eventually, a few manuscripts and a gazillion queries and submissions later, I sold a book.
At least once during the writing of each subsequent story, I’ve told my husband I’m quitting because it’s just too hard. Each time, he tells me he doesn’t want to hear it.
Because you can’t quit being what you are. Because I didn’t become a writer of romance novels—I just was one and I still am. And I love being one.
So, what about you?
Obviously, if you’re a reader and not a writer, you don’t have to answer this question. However, we’re so glad to have you here that we have a question for you, too. What made you become a reader of romance novels? Let us know, and accept our gratitude that you did.
Retired from the post office, Liz Flaherty spends non-writing time sewing, quilting, and doing whatever else she wants to. She and Duane live in the old farmhouse in Indiana they moved to in 1977. They’ve talked about moving, but really…30-some years’ worth of stuff? It’s not happening! Her favorite thing these days is writing for Harlequin Heartwarming.
