The character of Angel St. Clair is dear to my heart. She is truly a broken woman having suffered so much. Of course, I love the way fate intervenes with a different plan than the one she has mapped for herself. If you've read book one, you know that Luke Samson, son of Brant Samson and stepson of Abby, went through his own suffering after the death of his mother. However, the unwavering love of his family changed him from a sullen, heartbroken boy into the perfect man for an angel.
My perfect day: Laptop; WiFi availability; Java Mocha; characters demanding their stories be told; a plot that comes together; and hours to live in an alternate reality. Afterward, I return home to wash dishes and vacuum.
Seriously, I have always loved reading, and now I love writing. As a preteen, I devoured Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Mysteries. When I reached my teen years, the romance genre became my favorite and that has never changed. A few years ago, I decided to try my hand at writing and I've been doing so with a passion ever since. After writing a fantasy series, my current focus is western romance, both contemporary and historical. Because I hate saying goodbye to characters who have lived with me for months, I usually create a series so they can be revisited from book to book.
I also write under the pen name of Colleen Clay.
