THE SECRET OF A ROMANCE WRITER
Erin Quinn (aka Erin Grady) and I'm new to popculturedivas and pretty excited to be here! As this is my very first post, I hope I "do it right" and say something interesting, if not meaningful. To tell you a little about me, I'm the author of six novels, the latest of which was released in August. HAUNTING BEAUTY is the first in a series and will be followed by HAUNTING WARRIOR in May 2010.
There's a story behind the publication of my haunting series. About this time two years ago I'd been chewed up and spit out by the grind of the day job, the pressures of my family responsibilities, finances, the publishing business, and life in general. I took a look around and thought--something has to give. I had the choice of making that something my sanity or my health. And then I read that little known (*g*) book called, THE SECRET.
An avid romance reader, I've never had much time for self-help books. To me, self-help is losing myself in the world of happily ever after. In fact, I was so distanced from the market of self-help that I didn't even know THE SECRET was self-help when I started listening to the audio book. I just knew I'd heard about it over and over, so thought...okay, better find out what it's all about.
