I was interviewed for Examiner.com about my latest release, upcoming projects and my writing process. You can check out a preview below as well as find a link to the full interview.
Buffy: Romance authors count among the most popular book writers, partly because the best romantic novels mix scorching romance with very human problems. While my own writing has romantic elements, I wouldn’t call myself a romance writer. But that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate those writers who do capture the genre and give me a good, engrossing story to boot.
One of my favorites is L. Rosario, a vampire fiction writer with a touch of historical romance thrown in. I was lucky enough to get caught up with her a couple of weeks ago to talk about writing books and her process. Those of you who are interested in exploring romance writing as a career will find her comments about the writing process extremely insightful.
(Buffy) Tell my readers a bit about you? How long have you been a writer?
(L) I was first published in 2006 and have eight books to my credit, seven currently available, one recently out of print. But I imagine, like most authors, I’ve been writing much longer than I’ve been published.

Captive Fantasy synopsis:
Seraphina Scala has just confessed she’s never had an orgasm and now her friend has the perfect solution; a night spent at Captive Fantasy, a club that guarantees to fulfill every deep, dark, secret desire. Sera would rather admit she’s a vampire than join her friend at such a place, but she doesn’t, and she finds herself surrounded by ravenous women and drop-dead gorgeous men. One in particular steals her attention…
Valentino was literally created to make fantasies come true. He’s used to the eager women who flood into Captive Fantasy every night to take what he offers, but when he meets the shy Sera, he knows he has his work cut out for him. Something about her strikes a chord deep inside, and he soon realizes he wants more than just a breathy thank you for a “job” well done.
Valentino awakens a side of Sera she’s kept locked away for nearly three centuries, and now she must confront her past, her present and her future. Doing so won’t be so bad with Valentino by her side, but will he want her once he realizes what she really is? Or will his secret be the one thing they cannot overcome?

We authors are a visual lot, and I don’t think I’m alone in saying, it helps fuel the imagination to look at pretty things whilst plotting. Here’s a glimpse at what I used as inspiration for the world of Descent Into Darkness. But do keep in mind, the story is yours once you become the reader. Which means you are free to “see” whatever you desire within the pages of the story.
