Welcome to the Howloween Blog Hop! I love how Halloween has become the somewhat unofficial holiday of the paranormal romance genre. In my last post for the Snarkology hop (you can still comment on that post for a chance to win a copy of Werewolves in the Kitchen!) I talked a bit about the holiday of Samhain vs. Halloween. Today I’m thinking more about how paranormal romance has become so popular. Which has me thinking, why do I read this stuff? Why do I write it?
Happy Halloween! I’m excited to be joining the Snarkology Halloween Hop with lots of fun prizes for all you grown-up trick-or-treaters.
Halloween was one of my favorite holidays as a kid. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was born to be an event planner. Every year I’d plot how I would design the perfect party. I was obsessed with all things glow in the dark.
It wasn’t until years later that I started planning and executing actual events. I’ve done themed Star Wars parties at scifi conventions, masquerade balls, conferences, and all sorts of fun things. It’s my dream to do a Faerie costume masquerade ball in Chicago.
These days, I tend to celebrate Samhain more than the secular Halloween.
I’m hosted today on Literary Lagniappe offering some behind-the-scenes tidbits from Werewolves in the Kitchen and a sneak peek at Werewolves with Chocolate.

I actually lived at a spiritual retreat center once. It was lonely, monastic work; out in the woods, there were zero dating prospects. Definitely no sexy werewolves! I was in the catering kitchen/laundry room washing my clothes when I came up with this steamy story idea. I wrote the menage scene with Ellie, Jake, and Kyle, then figured out the two guys were werewolves.
The title for the book almost ended up being “The Silk Scarf.” I changed that because it implied a BDSM theme. Kyle and Jake are certainly Alpha, but nobody’s getting tied up.
I’ve always been more into vampires so I was surprised that writing werewolves ended up being so sexy. As a kid I was terrified of wolves after a series of recurring nightmares.
It also surprised me that my first published…

I’m guest blogging at Star-Crossed Romance today discussing so many like Paranormal romance and magic in our fiction. Here’s an excerpt and a link to the full post:
Why do We Like Paranormal and Magical Stories?
The paranormal romance genre is pretty popular, but being a curious person I sometimes wonder what makes the supernatural, the otherworldly, and the magical, so endlessly fascinating. I must find it captivating since everything I write has some kind of a fantasy or sci-fi element to it….I think there are things below the surface of the “real world.” I think there is the occasional magic, the occasional unexplainable phenomena, even the occasional miracle. And I think that those stories inspire us and entrance us.
