I just returned from the RT Convention in New Orleans, and my brain hasn’t quite kicked back into gear yet. But I was mulling over some fun things on the plane yesterday, so I thought I’d share five characteristics of a writer with you today. 1. Homeland Security is probably monitoring our internet use.

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
I live in the wild northwest, where cowboys exist. Heck. They do more than exist. They work hard, dealing with powerful animals and a deadly Mother Nature. Hats are worn to protect their faces from wind, sun, and cold…and boots are worn to protect their feet from hoofs, rocks, and crevices. Not for fashion. There’s… Read More

CHANGING TO A DIFFERENT GENRE?
By Kat Martin One of the questions people continue to ask me is how I managed to change from writing Historical novels to writing Contemporary Romantic Suspense. I have to say it’s never easy to do. Publishers are not risk takers. They always want to take the safe road. It’s easier for them to sell… Read More
