I give up. As hard as I’ve worked against it, I’m pretty sure I’m a romance writer. I love action, adventure, mystery, and all of the other aspects of fantasy writing, but romance is simply what drives me. Romance is the part I love most in my favorite books and movies (even books and movies that are hardly about romance at all), and I can’t help but include it in all of my books. Seeing a romance develop between my characters is stupidly exciting for me, and the whole process is bordering on addiction.
I suppose what I’m trying to say is that my new Epic Fantasy Series has evolved into a romance. My brother is going to be disappointed, as he was looking forward to me writing a book that would be more his speed. Sorry brother, but my protagonist couldn’t help falling in love. It happens to the best of us…if we’re lucky :).
