One of my favorite types of books to read is Contemporary Fiction with romantic elements. I love getting into the head of a gal just like me and discover how she learns, triumphs, and loves those around her.
I have recently completed my first contemporary work, and just smile when I think about it. I hope that one day, others will read it and see it for an authentic, loving, creative story to deepen their own sense of the fullness of life.
(And of course, I’ve woven history within the story. :))
