Actually no. When I was growing up, I wanted to be a lawyer…then later a plastic surgeon (until I realized I had to take organic chemistry :shudder:)…then later an investment banker. But as it turned out, I didn’t become any of those.
And when I started writing, I decided I wanted to write something that was uplifting. I don’t mind really good novels with sad endings, and I read them. But I didn’t have the heart to make my characters go through some super crappy conflict and problems and…end up dead. So romance seemed like a natural genre for somebody like me. And it doesn’t hurt that I enjoy reading it. :)
