What I enjoy writing most could be called wilderness gothic.
I love the slightly scary feel of Gothics and the way they seriously get into the heroine’s head as she works her way through all kinds of problems to a happily-ever-after ending. But I’ve never been in a castle. Wouldn’t know what one is like.
I have, however, lived in the North Woods for many years so I definitely know a bit about the wilderness and I know that being surrounded by thousands of trees that all look alike can be beautiful, restful, pleasant, fun … and sometimes scary. So when I found myself writing romance fiction more than any other type, I placed those stories in the most enchanting, delicious, scary and dangerous setting I could envision. The North Woods.
Come journey with my heroines as they struggle through all sorts of gothic-style perils that have been tweaked to fit the wilderness locale that is their every-day world.
