Beautifully crafted holiday romance stories have always been my favourite novels to read: not only during the holiday season, but all year round. I’ve discovered that I’m not alone. Readers worldwide enjoy ‘love under the mistletoe’ stories that evoke sincere emotions and reflect family, heart and home. As writers, we play a part in enhancing the holidays for our readers by taking elements that may not be as magical in real life and making them sparkle on the pages.
When I quit a day job last January to write full-time, it was a challenge, at first, to focus writing at home. Up until that point, my writing sessions had been on coffee breaks, sitting outside at a picnic table, or scribbling furiously with a notebook pressed up against my steering wheel while waiting in a drive-thru line or secretly in a bathroom stall whenever inspiration hit in the middle of an important meeting. 🙂
