I write traditional Regency romance. However, my stories deal with dark themes and feature plenty of romantic and, yes, sexual tension. My choice is not a judgement of the tastes of others, but rather a response to the call of “write what you like”. This is what I like.
I am currently a struggling writer. By “struggling”, I mean “unpublished”. I have it on good authority that should I ever become a published writer, then that is when the real struggle begins. Can’t wait! I think.
