Valentine's Day and this Romance Writer
My history with Valentine's Day laid the groundwork for how I feel about romance, and relationships, and happily-ever-after. Hope in the ideal, hope for the best, hope that love can heal and conquer all really does make my world go round.
Of course, I'm realistic. Anyone who knows me recognizes my pragnatism. I don't see the world through rose-colored glasses. But I do recognize the precious moments when my son comes home from across the country, when my BFF's daughter gives me a hug, when my husband and I celebrate our anniversary, when we find a kitten in our bakcyard on my parents' anniversary. I look for the beautiful, the honest, the balms and the balance.
And I write romance to keep the ideal alive, to bring escape, and to give hope that truly loving relationships can heal.
