The romance genre covers a wide spectrum of topics. Those who don’t read it, as well as many in the media, seem to treat it as nothing more than fluff and pure escapism. And it can be just that. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to put your worries aside for a few hours and lose… 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.

Somebody asked me the other… Read More
New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti has
published over twenty-five dark paranormals, romantic
suspense, and contemporary romances, and her books have
appeared multiple times on several of the bestseller lists.
She has received a Publisher Weekly Starred Review
for Wicked Edge, Romantic Times Reviewer
Choice Nominations for Forgotten Sins and Sweet
Revenge, and RT Top Picks for several of her
novels. She believes strongly in luck, karma, and working
her butt off...and she thinks one of the best things
about being an author, unlike the lawyer she used to be, is
that she can let the crazy out.
Rebecca attended Pepperdine University, earning a
bachelor's degree in Journalism with a Political
Science emphasis. While there she worked as the
Editor-in-Chief of The Graphic newspaper, was a
member of the Pi Phi Sorority, and an intern for President
Reagan, who still gave 3-5 speeches a week, even though he
was no longer president.
After college, Rebecca worked as an art curator and a Senate
aide before heading to law school, where she received her
Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho. She married
Tony Zanetti in the middle of her second year of law school
and became pregnant with their first child during the third
year. She graduated law school, gave birth three weeks
later, and took the Bar Exam three weeks after that. All she
remembers about the bar exam is that it was so quiet in the
testing room, she thought about taking a quick nap. But she
continued on, passed the bar and became a lawyer. She worked
for a large firm, then a small firm, then the county while
also teaching legal classes at her local community college.
Now she writes romances about vampires, cowboys, and soldiers.
Her current series are: The Scorpius Syndrome, The Realm
Enforcers, the Dark Protectors, the Sin Brothers, and Blood
Brothers. Follow Rebecca: Website | Blog | Twitter | Facebook | Newsletter

How Tabletop Gaming Can Help Your Writing
Based on my love of fantasy, my ability to quote many popular fandoms and my frequent trips to pop culture conventions, it would seem pretty likely that I’ve been playing tabletop games for a long time. Unfortunately, they weren’t sold to me the right way until many years later. As I understood them, you gathered… Read More
