I was raised on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for most of my life before moving to the coldest place on earth – North Dakota. 🙂 I moved there in 2009 and since then I have spent two years in Pittsburgh. Now we are moving back to North Carolina. I am married to a wonderful hero of my own and we have two heroes-in-training and an angel daughter. I work in the medical field, go to school and I am an active blogger/writer.
I have always been a reader and discovered my first romance novel at the age of ten. There was no turning back after that! I stuck to historical/contemporary novels for the longest time. Slowly, I broke out of my niche and delved into paranormal. That has become my go to genre for the last several years.
In late 2012, I was notified that I had been selected to be an Avon Addict. This is an exclusive group that Avon publishing selects to read and review books. This was the catalyst that got my writing ball rolling. I had tinkered with a blog but hadn’t really done anything with it. Since I was reviewing books for Avon, it made sense to have my own place to do it. Thus, Romancebookworm’s Reviews was born.
I met a lot of new and wonderful people when I started reviewing and a few of them talked me into National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo. The purpose is 30 days/50,000 words. That is how my debut novel, Everlasting Hunger was born. I was so excited to finish my book, and then it just languished. My blog exploded and there was no time to work on anything else. My blog has turned into more than I could ever dream of and it has allowed me to follow my dream of writing.
