Introduction - Linda LaRoque

I started writing in 1991. My first book wasn't published until 2007. This year I've had one short story and one novel published. In 2009 I'll have two, possible three novels and one short story published. It has been a thrilling ride and it's so rewarding to see my dream of becoming a published author come true.

I've lived most of my life in Texas so most of my stories are set there. I particularly love West Texas, the desert landscapes, plant life, and the people.

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I'd ever write something paranormal. But, I wrote a time travel, loved it, and now have written three more. I even find myself occasionally adding paranormal happenings in my contemporary western romances. My newest release with Champagne Books, Forever Faithful, has a ghost.

Here is the book trailer.

Hi Viola,
Me too. It's so much fun. Tell me what exactly urban fantasy?

Hi Linda - yes paranormal is such a fascinating genre to write - you can really allow your imagination free rein!

Linda,
There's several definitions out there, but this is what I think it means:

Urban fantasy tends to be a bit grittier than your average paranormal romance. It's a contemporary fantasy set in a city, and it typically doesn't have the romantic HEA. (But I could never write a depressing ending!! There has to be some hope in the end for me.:-)
