Guest Post by Romance Author Randi Perrin
I am the least romantic person in the world.
Seriously, go ask my husband.
So, all my friends found it funny when they found out I was being published… for writing romance.
As Alanis would say… isn’t it ironic? Don’t you think?
Okay, maybe it’s not, but I have an active imagination. I always have. I get to use my writing to allow my imagination to run free. In reality, I’m scared of intimacy and I’m not romantic. But in my writings, I get to use these characters I create to act out the things in my imagination that I’m too chicken to express in reality.
Romance is often mocked in literary circles because it’s formulaic. It’s predictable.
Sure. There’s that. We all know they are going to get together in the end. If they don’t, we often feel cheated. Just because we know they will end up together doesn’t mean it’s not worth the read. Or for me, the write.
In the end, I find romance a complete escape. When I write it, I get to step into a world where I can have an ooey, gooey romantic side without stressing ruining the tough-girl image I’ve been projecting my entire life.

Randi has spent her entire life writing in one form or another. In fact, if she wasn't writing, she'd likely go completely and utterly insane. Her husband has learned to recognize when the voices are talking in her head and she needs some quality time with an empty Word file (the key to a successful marriage with a writer). A pop-culture junkie, she has been known to have entire conversations in movie quotes and/or song lyrics. (You'll see this come up in her writing as well.) She is the author of Virtue of Death, Wreck You, and a story included in the anthology Unintentional. She already has several projects lined up for release in 2017.
