No one in my family has ever aspired to participate in the Olympics, but that doesn't deter from my enjoyment of the events. It's as if each athlete is a part of me. Yes, I am an emotional ninny.
I'm trying because I've been getting a lot of emails from readers asking for more stories in the series. The latest was from an author who told me my bears were a topic of conversation at her local RWA chapter meeting. They probably wondered what kind of simple-minded fool would write a paranormal that didn't fit half of the rules. She gave me a list of the three shifters they wanted books about. One was married, but they wanted to hear how he met his love and got his HEA. I don't think I can convince my editor to go for all three, so I'll pitch one at a time.
If I were to label what kind of romances I write, I'd have to say anything but Regencies and futuristics. The variety of my published things makes it hard to market myself. My name is my brand. Most readers expect a certain level of humor in my stories. My editor tells me my humor should be greatly reduced, my plot lines are heavy, like my hips, aaaaand first person is preferable to third.
It's like the punch line: "Just when I learn all the answers, they change the questions." Yeah, that's the state of publishing right about now.

Ryan, who damaged his knee in the finals, took second place in the state at 170 pounds. Once the slide show starts, click on the arrows in the lower right corner so it goes full-screen and crank up the volume..
