I love stories.

I listen to them. I watch them on TV, videos, or movies. I read them.

And I write them.

I’ve written almost every kind of story there is. Mystery, romance, confession, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, horror, and every other kind I can think of and garnered a couple prizes and ‘best-selling’ author designations along the way.

I’ve written short stories, novellas, and novels.

In the process I’ve learned that my favorite stories are science fiction and paranormal. Preferably the two combined.

My stories are always clean, they are always either contemporary or near future, they always have at least a slight romantic element, and they always end happily. Always. Guaaranteed. (Okay, two short stories, ‘The River Boy’ and ‘Down From The Mountain’ have endings that might not be considered completely happy. Maybe just somewhat happy. You decide.)

Check out the covers below and see what you think. And have a happy, happy day.

What are some tips on writing a good anithero-hero romance subplot in an action-focused novel?

There’s just one rule that I know of for writing a romance into an action-focused novel and, unfortunately, a lot of authors don’t seem to know it.

Don’t force your romance sub-plot into the midst of the action where it doesn’t belong. 

Don’t have your hero and heroine getting all sexy or mushy while bullets are flying and they are fighting for their lives because that’s not how real life works. People first pay attention to staying alive and fall in love only when the danger, though it may still be real, is not so critical as to push everything else into the back of their minds and/or emotions.

Save romance for when and where it would fit in a similar situation in real life.
