Writers: What books inspired you to write your first novel?
Mine were Legacy of Lies by Elizabeth Chandler and The China Garden by Liz Berry and obviously Twilight, due to the romance.
Readers: What do you look for in a paranormal romance story?
I look for suspense, quality writing, easy flow of sentences, voice, maybe a Gothic tone, dreamy prose, great description, handsome and mysterious brooding heros with a strong independent protagonist. First person narrative, and realistic characters. Plenty of romance, and swoon worthy dialogue.
