A Romantic Life: More research…

A Romantic Life: heroisms


It’s actually pretty tricky in romance writing to write the perfect hero; one who is wonderful, but not perfect. A hero who doesn’t come off as fabricated — a hero who is loveable, yet still has flaws and who is believable. The same goes for heroines. I believe the greatest romance writers are masters at that.

A Romantic Life: Research… someone’s gotta do it!


Speaking of research… I love to really build my characters before I start my writing. I have detailed character profile sheets I complete and I always have pictures to help me visualize the characters. In my next book, there are four main characters and my main hero is inspired by Jake Gyllenhal (a recent ‘crush of the week’).

Crush of the Week: Ben Affleck

So I’ve been bad. I have not posted a ‘crush of the week’ for a few weeks now… naughty. But to make up for all that, here is a nice one for you all.

Not long ago I featured Matt Damon… so I also had to feature Ben Affleck as well… those two are long time friends who hit the big times together when they won the Oscar for Best Screenplay for Good Will Hunting.


Benjamin Géza Affleck-Boldt (born August 15, 1972),  is an American actor, film director, writer, and producer.

Where you’ve seen him: Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Good Will Hunting, Pearl Harbor, Armageddon, The Sum of all Fears, The Town and Argo  which he also directed and many more.

Romantic connections: Gwyneth Palthrow, J.Lo, and now married to Jennifer Garner – they have three kids!

Looking forward to his newest movie Gone Girl – loved the book.

A Romantic Life: Blood lust

comic6blogI admit it… I LOVED The Twilight books but haven’t really followed up with reading other Vampire books. I loved how sensual and passionate the Twilight series was without being explicit. Now, if only we could all find ourselves a gorgeous brooding vampire. 🙂

comic4blogI like the stubble on her legs – any writer knows that when you really get into a book, everything else goes out the window, including shaving your legs. 🙂

A Romantic Life: Yummy!

A while ago, there was a poll in the Toronto Star about Brad Pitt versus George Clooney: who is hottest?  I personally would vote for George. 😉
