Romance – The Feel Good Factor

on April 28, 2021

A synthesis (aka ‘why’) by Royaline Sing Disclaimer: I am not a professional when it comes to psychology etc. This is for fun and all opinions are my own. I practically grew up on Romance. I’m referring to Bollywood Romance movies (I like some other genre movies in Bollywood too). Even as a young child,… Read More

Royaline Sing

As my first fiction work, I've a notebook length movie script, featuring my favorite stars. I was probably ten. It hasn't seen the light of the day (And it won't). But story telling lingered. Though I have a software engineering job, the creative world teased from afar. So one day, I finally put the pen to the paper (or my fingers to the keyboard?) and started writing. Now, I write through the noise of my lovely two kids, a very supportive (but sweetly clueless) husband and a bank job where numbers rule. Born and brought up in India, I'm a huge fan of Bollywood romantic movies and the music. I also like all things Marvel! I love to travel and so many destinations are on my bucket list. Scotland, London, Agra, you get the picture. I am currently writing Historical Romances, with heroines setting their own norms and coming to toes with heroes worth loving.

Jetting Around the World in the Pages of a Book

on March 8, 2021

I grew up in a very small town in central Canada where it was winter for nine months of the year. And not Hallmark-movie-winter with delicate snow falling while characters sip hot drinks wrapped only in a thick sweater and a jaunty scarf. This was eyeballs-freeze-in-thirty-seconds winter. I don’t think I would have survived if… Read More

Diversity needs to be the new normal in Romance Writing

on February 9, 2021

I’ve been reading romance novels since I was young. Being from India, over the years, I often wondered why the men and women from my country were not represented in romance books. Why was the hero not a dashing billionaire from India? Why was the heroine not a spunky, successful girl who reminded me of… Read More

The Tea Cake Connection

on December 2, 2020

When my sister and I were young, my maternal grandmother used to make tea cakes all the time.  They weren’t really sweet, but they were round, rich and buttery. Most of the time I couldn’t wait until they came out of the oven. I remember watching my grandmother as she hummed her favorite hymn while… Read More

Nadia Comaneci, Bart Conner, and Me by Shae Connor

on November 10, 2020

One of the reasons I wrote Rough and Tumble was because I’m a gymnastics fan. When I started thinking about doing a college sports romance series, gymnastics was the sport on the top of my list. I had to do some research about collegiate gymnastics, but for the sport itself, I just had to go… Read More

FAKE DATES INSPIRED BY ROM-COMS

on August 18, 2020

By Pintip Dunn I adore rom-com movies. In fact, for an all-too-brief period, my husband and I had the tradition of celebrating our dating anniversary by watching a rom-com at the theaters. (Lucky for us, our anniversary is Valentine’s Day, so there was no shortage of romantic movies!) We saw My Best Friend’s Wedding on… Read More

A first-generation Thai American, I grew up in a tiny town in Kansas. I went on tograduate from Harvard University, magna cum laude, with an A.B., and to receive her J.D. at Yale Law School.

I'm a two-time RITA award winner and aNew York Timesbestselling author of young adult fiction. My books have been translated into four languages, and I've been a Junior Library Guild selection and have received a starred review from Kirkus. In addition, my books have been nominated for the following awards: the Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire; the Japanese Sakura Medal; the MASL Truman Award; the Tome Society It list; the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award; and a Kirkus Reviews Best Indie Book of the Year.

I'm obsessed with penguins, and my childhood dream was to marry someone whose last name is "Gwynn" --- so that my name could be "Pin Gwynn." Alas, I got stuck with Dunn instead, but my husband and three children are worth the sacrifice.

We all visit Thailand yearly in order to stay connected with my family.
