I remember when I met Ella and Micha back in The Secret of Ella and Micha.

I didn’t intend for all of my heroines to tote guns or knives, be trained in fencing, or be proficient at archery. Yet most of them do have the ability to use at least one weapon. Someone asked me recently if it’s because I own a couple of pistols myself, and as the daughter of a retired police officer and the wife of a hunter, I’m familiar and comfortable around guns. No, that wasn’t it at all.

"I have a confession. I never read “The Night Before Christmas” to my daughters when they were growing up. And I’ve never actually read Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”—my knowledge about it has been gleaned from movies and TV.

"For me, a romance novel is about challenge. It’s about meeting someone who, on the one hand, you’re powerfully attracted to, yet on the other hand brings significant challenges to your life. It’s never easy for the heroine and hero of a romance novel because the story is about character growth."
