Why Inspirational Romance?

Updated: Oct 5, 2022

Why Inspirational Romance?

Many years ago, when I was studying to be a dentist, I used to set time aside to read in between study sessions. And what would I read? Romance!

Last year, I started a writing business, something I have always wanted to do. I was wondering what genre to write in and did some market research. Clean and wholesome romance is very popular, and as a Christian, that resonated with me. I decided to write clean and wholesome with a Christian bent.

My interest in writing began at secondary school. In my 2nd year at St. Cuthbert’s College in Auckland, I had a memoir piece published in the yearly magazine. As part of my English studies, I wrote poems. I also enjoyed writing letters and journaling.

Later as an adult, I went to a creative writing course, an evening class at a local school. At the end of the course, the tutor suggested I look at the courses at the New Zealand Institute of Business Studies. I had a story I wanted to write, and that became my first novel, The Terrible and Great Year of Molly Evans. Then I did a creative non-fiction course at NMIT and, more recently, another course on short stories through the NZ Institute of Business Studies.

I have done some other courses through a writer named Britt Malka, who has a range of excellent materials. With Britt’s help, it looked easier to write a clean romance. Victorine E. Lieske has also been an enormous help with her material. So here I am, writing and publishing inspirational romance.

Romance is a great escape from the challenges of life, a way to enjoy light drama without it getting too dark. I have so enjoyed reading romance again and also watching movies! I must admit I have cried a few tears!

I so hope you enjoy the stories that I produce and that you, too, will be whisked away to another world and also be encouraged in your faith.

Isaiah 43:19 “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
