About Me

Lace is an aspiring romance novelist who… Ok, this is Lace writing this, so we can drop the third-person pretense that someone else is writing about me. Everyone knows that most indie authors write their own bios, right? So let me tell you a little about myself.

I grew up the child of divorced parents, thus spending my early yearsΒ mostly shuttling back and forth between San Francisco and Seattle, which I grew to think of as my twin homes. I can get quite nostalgic about both these cities, but today Seattle is where I live, work, and mostly play. Like so many others in the Emerald City, I have one foot firmly planted in the mountains (I love hiking and backpacking in the Cascades), while the other is splashing about the waters of Puget Sound (is anything half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats? With apologies to Kenneth Grahame).

When not on the water or in the woods, however, I can usually be found with my nose firmly pressed between the pages of a book. Or books. At any given time I’m likely reading at least two different books (one in print, one on my kindle, usually), and if I’m not reading a book, then I’m trying to write one. My reading tastes can vary considerably, from science fiction and fantasy to spy thrillers and historical drama, and of course, romance. Especially erotic romance. In fact, any of those genres are generally improved if a little romantic and sexual tension is embedded into the plot, inspiring or even forcing the characters to take actions they otherwise might not, risking it all for love. Is there anything sexier than when the leads, having just survived against incredible odds, and still on the run from the bad guys, find their lust for life, and by extension each other, so incredibly irresistible that they simply must have each other, right now, right here, while the world burns around them?

(Casablanca may still be my favorite movie of all time. Is there a story element it doesn’t have?)

I love reading about lovers finding each other, and I love writing about it, too.

    • Did it not launch his career, and then launch a new style? There’s a reason ‘The Postman Always Rings Twice’ was adapted for film not once, but twice. A little love in our noir, a little noir in our love, and both are made spicier, harder to put down, more difficult to forget.

      • Absolutely… directed by Garnett with Lana Turner and John Garfield in the original and Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange in the second. Garfield to me was the better adaptation for the Cain character, though.

        Yea, I figured you had read them. I was being a little ironic in saying that. πŸ™‚

  1. Such a beautiful craft! We are loving your blog and your approach to such a life-essential activity! My husband took a bit of a different approach to erotic writing with his blog (I am using his WP account, btw) which, like you stated, is actually about us. I look forward with aroused anticipation of your posts!!

    • Thank you! I’m looking forward to checking out your and your husband’s blog and writing (I can’t at the moment — um, not really in an NSFW-friendly spot, and I have a feeling… lol; so, tonight! Now I’m the one with aroused anticipation). πŸ™‚

      • Yes, it is definitely NSFW! My husband (really, I am too) is seeking perspective on his blog topic as it is something that I never “thought” about until he started doing a after 30 years together. It changed EVERYTHING about our intimacy! Please enjoy! We both look forward to your thoughts!

  2. Hi! I think you’re the first person to like “About… the Personal” and “About… the Professional” on my website. Then I read about you on “About Me.” Yes, us bloggers write about ourselves. And I like what you wrote about yourself!

    • Hi Wathi, thank you so much for stopping by! I’m a huge fan of “Outlander,” both the books and the series, though I haven’t watched Season 2 yet — I’ll get the discs on Netflix and binge it all in a week, that’s my style! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Julie, and thank you so much for dropping by and leaving such a nice comment! I really enjoyed reading your blog, and I’m looking forward to reading more. You know we have some common interests. πŸ˜‰

      I do apologize that I’ve been less active on my blog lately — “real life” has a way of catching up to us all, I’m afraid — but I do hope to get back in the groove of things before too long, and give you (and everyone else) more to enjoy! So I hope you come back, and feel free to leave a comment anytime; I love interacting with everyone! And I’ll be back over to your site to catch up on your latest doings.
