When my mom passed away all I could think of was how she poured everything into us– her children. I asked her once when she was a kid what did she want to be when she grew up and she said, “A teacher or own a boutique.” So when I wrote Adored- The Harem Diaries Book One, I made the heroine a teacher and some day down the line I’ll write about a woman who owns a boutique to honor her. All my dedications belong to my mom. ♥♥♥
Why write Historical Romance? Historical Romance (HR) was all the rage when I started reading novels as a teen. Historical Romance is the penultimate escapist fantasy. These books swept you away in sagas of far away lands featuring the lives of people, their adventures to majestic places. Present day HR is very different from the books is the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Gone are the stories of damsels in distress being rescued by the hero. Now have women who embody the self agency of today’s woman only placed in a setting of a far gone era. Is this historically inaccurate? Maybe, maybe not but that’s not the point. The writer’s of today are not writing for our grandmothers we are writing for today’s woman. That is why today’s Historical Romance is a breath of fresh air.
Adored: The Harem Diaries Book One is one such story. You can find it at one of the retailers below! *Shameless Plug*
Many of the my fellow authors who have read my book reference, “The King and I” when talking about the experience. However, the book that inspired me was “Whitney, My Love” by Judith McNaught. After reading that story I was like WOW!!! How can I write a story like that but make it my own? Thus, the journey to The Harem Diaries began. I look forward to turning the Historical Romance genre on its ear with this new series! If you are a fan of romance and want something a little different than house parties, hunts and balls (I do them a little differently), then welcome to my world! Are you ready to get your bell rung? #Adored #TheHaremDiaries
