Why I Write Romance: Delores Fossen
Ever had a bad day at work? Well, when I’m writing Intrigues, a bad day is GOOD. I love creating “lives on the line” danger woven together with “hearts in jeopardy” romance—like my November 2010 Intrigue, Savior in the Saddle. Trust me, I put the hero and heroine through some bad days while they’re falling in love.
Before I ever submitted a manuscript to Intrigue, I loved reading them. I studied the line and came up with a plot that I hoped would fit. It did—yeehaw! My first Intrigue came out in 2002, and thanks to awesome guidance from my editor, Allison Lyons, I’ve gone on to sell nearly forty more. It’s not always easy, and I stick to a schedule writing the contracted books and coming up with ideas for new ones. But talk about a dream job. I get to think up ways for couples in danger to fall in love. So, here’s to more bad days at work—as long as they end with happily-ever-afters writing for Intrigue.
