Do you have a passion-one you might have kept secret for a long time? I do. Earning an M.A. in literature only brought my favorite things into sharper view. My passion is gothic romance: reviewing it and writing it. If you like romance that will make you quiver and a hint of the supernatural to make you shudder, you’re in the right place.
Oh, of course I do a lot of other things like teach and tutor English, edit, and wrangle with an almost nine-year-old daughter and her mad scientist father. But whenever I can, I write gothic romance reminiscent of the early authors of the genre. It’s just that my heroines have cell phones and Facebook-unless I’m writing historicals, of course. I’ve penned a couple regular romances, but my characters usually want graveyards, murder, mouldering ancestral mansions, and isolated spaces. My Hutterite gothic romance, “Blood on Her Bonnet,” was featured in Salon.com’s books section on September 1, 2012. Recently, a trailer for the Sorrowmoor kickstarter I’m doing was highlighted in USA Today’s HEA column.
