But let’s talk about the writing part. My newest novel, Never an Amish Bride, hits all the elements of your standard romance: chemistry galore,… Read More

By Tee O’Fallon The Crime. Trap ’N’ Trace is based on an actual crime that took place somewhere in the U.S. in some decade. No spoilers here, so that’s all you get for now. The only hint I’ll give is that the perpetrator(s) stumped and eluded law enforcement for years. The Setting. What I liked… Read More

I have always written in the paranormal/fantasy space so supernatural is clearly my jam. But I do have to admit that Bait N’ Witch is my first book which focuses almost exclusively on magic users. The focus isn’t supernatural creatures with specific special abilities, but instead on witches and warlocks with the ability to use… Read More

I have a confession to make. I’m a big chicken. I’m the girl who checks the doors three times before bed to make sure they’re locked and made my husband get an alarm system because the golf club by my bed when he was away for work just wasn’t enough. I’ve never liked scary movies,… Read More

It’s no secret that most authors fall into two camps—music while writing or silence. I fall into the silence category. If I hear a song, I’m humming or singing. Way too distracting. I need the quiet to be able to hear my characters speak. That doesn’t mean I’m not inspired by it. Just the opposite…. Read More
N.J. Walters has always been a voracious reader of romance novels and decided one day that she could write one as well. The contemporary story, Discovering Dani, was the very first novel she wrote while living in a little town much like the one Dani O'Rourke lives in, though all other similarities to Dani's life pretty much end there. Then she wrote another one that followed up on Dani's friends and neighbors. But she didn't consider herself a "real" writer yet. Just a few years later N. J. had a mid-life crisis at a fairly young age, gave notice after ten years at her job on a Friday and received a tentative acceptance for her first
published novel (an erotic romance) from a publisher on the following Sunday. Happily married for over eighteen years to the love of her life, with his encouragement and support she gave up the job of selling books for the more pleasurable job of writing them. She now spends her days writing, reading and reviewing books. It's a tough life, but someone's got to do it. And
some days she actually feels like a "real" writer.
I love history, especially British history, which is why I write historical romance. While most accurate accounts of the past do not include happy endings with wars, murders, famine, and plagues, a happy ending is essential in the romance genre. Therefore, Scottish historical romance is the perfect place for me to immerse myself. When I… Read More

The story is set in Lunenburg Nova Scotia. I live about 30 minutes away and Lunenburg is a small fishing village and one of my favorite places to visit. Stephen King often films his movies there. The series, Locke & Key, written by Stephen Kings son, was also filmed there recently. In the summer, Lunenburg… Read More

Victorian London was a tough environment for a woman, especially if she didn’t have the safety net of a good family and enough money to put food on the table. We readers of historical romance know that, without those things, there were few options for lone, penniless women. Marriage and motherhood or, less ideally, life… Read More

I just love that Miranda Lambert song Everybody Dies Famous In A Small Town. If you haven’t heard it, listen here. It’s a great title and sums up, quite succinctly, the difference between the city and the country. Everyone knows who you are in a small town – for good or for bad. I had super… Read More

Romance readers love bad boy heroes, and I must admit I do, too. The wicked smile, the wicked sense of humor, the wicked ability to figure out exactly what makes the heroine tick and to use it for his own bad boy ends. His wickedness in bed. These are all swoon worthy. So, why can’t… Read More
