I’m a contemporary romance author.
Not descriptive enough? Yes, I figured as much, but what else should I say here?
Maybe I should start with a confession: I can’t remember the first romance novel I read or when I read it. I do know, however, that I had a stash of Harlequin romances when I was in middle school and that I hid said romances behind the covers of my Menudo magazines (if you’re not familiar with the boy band Menudo, picture young Ricky Martin in spandex—lots of spandex).
I continued to be an avid romance reader in college and law school, where my voracious romance reading likely affected what I absorbed from my classes. I mean, for years I thought the phrase “talk softly and carry a big stick” was dating advice. Ahem.
For more than a decade, I practiced law in the nation’s capital. Still, a romance novel was always within arms’ reach. Now that I no longer brave the treacherous commute to DC, I have ample time to hone my craft and plot stories about imperfect characters finding their perfect match. Okay, again I’ll be real here: I wear sweatpants most days and watch more reality television than a network television censor—all in the name of research, of course.
