I’ll start with a confession: I can’t remember the first romance novel I read or when I read it. But I do know that I had a stash of Harlequins when I was in middle school and that I hid said books between the covers of my Menudo magazines (if you’re not familiar with the Puerto Rican 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.
Before embarking on a writing career, I practiced media law in the nation’s capital. Still, a romance novel was always within arm’s 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, I’m going to be real: I wear sweatpants most days and spend far too much time on Twitter.
