One of the questions I’ve been asked most since my first book was published in 1997 is how many hours a day do I write. It used to depend on the deadline specified in my contract. When racing toward a deadline (and more advance monies released), I would write six or seven days a week, eight hours a day. I have turned in every contracted book before my deadline.

Although opinions may vary, a list of the best romances of all time would probably include these four stories near the top: Pride and Prejudice, Outlander, Jane Eyre, and Twilight.
What do these stories have in common? The heroine has a Deplorable Relative as well as a Scheming Rival. But that’s not all; the heroine also has a Kind Friend to confide in, a Despicable Villain to best, and at least one acquaintance who seems impossibly good.
