I’ve always said that spring is my favorite season (and in Canada we truly have four separate seasons!) but this year I am really looking forward to it. Winter has been particularly nasty, and old Jack Frost has broken many long-standing records. Every morning I get up and imagine what it will be like to be able to take my coffee out on the deck and watch the sun come up over the mountains. I can’t wait to get my hands buried in the mud of the flowerbeds and to go browse the local garden center for geraniums and daisies, petunias and marigolds and all the other colorful flowers that I plant in the pots on my deck.
Spring is also Mother Nature’s season of love. The birds sing cheerfully as they pursue their mates and settle down to build their nests among the green foliage. The rabbits, and ground squirrels, bears and turtles all emerge from hibernation to renewed life. The local cats can be heard yowling late into the night in the hopes of attracting members of the opposite sex. Amazingly, that works for them. No accounting for musical taste, I suppose.
Romance is in the air, and even us sophisticated humans are not immune. Spring makes me feel happy, and ready to tackle just about anything. I write my best love scenes sitting out in the spring sunshine with my laptop propped up on my knees and my faithful little dog busy chasing butterflies and grasshoppers in the yard. With months of warmth and sunshine ahead of me, I find it easy to believe in true love and happily ever after.
Anne is a gorgeous supermodel who writes romance in her spare time while jetting around Europe with a string of boytoys in tow.
Hmmm… no one is going to believe that. How about this?
Anne is an undercover agent for a super secret government agency, and when not saving the world for democracy and all the good people, she writes romance one-handed on a special mini computer designed just for her by a mad scientist.
Yeah, that sounds way better. So, ignore the people who tell you she’s just an ordinary person with an extraordinary imagination. They’re just jealous because she gets to play with James Bond and vacation in exotic locations.
When she's not busy saving the world or writing the next great novel, she likes to kayak, hike, ride motorcycles, swim, skate, practice karate, play her guitar, sing, and of course, read.
