Why write romance?

It's the only genre that held my attention.

I look forward to reading how the h/h get through their obstacles to find that happily ever after. I've always been attracted to romantic movies.

As a writer, it's exciting to help find love for two lonely people.

If only it was as easy to help friends and family find that special someone!


  1. So true! I can write a fictional happy ending any time of the day...

    It's trickier in real life!

  2. So do we imitate real life or idealize it?

  3. Isn't that why readers love romance books? Because they know there's going to be a happy ending. Which, sadly, doesn't always happen in real life. Romance fiction is escapism.
