Lettie Jones started out by writing sci-fi and fantasy but became frustrated when the romance subplot would take up more than half of the book. No matter how hard she tried to focus on the other aspects of the story, her characters insisted that their love story was just more important than saving the world. After years of struggling, she finally gave up and switched to writing romance, and everything fell into place. She still gets some sci-fi and fantasy in her books, but the characters are much happier knowing their love story takes center stage.
She is much happier too, because as fun as spaceships, magic, and shifters can be, she has an even better time trying to figure out what brings people together, how personalities match up, and why despite painful failures in the past people still crave and need love in their lives. She also enjoys putting her characters in awkward and vulnerable situations that force them to face their fears and bring them closer to their HEA. Of course, if all you’re looking for are strong characters and sexy love scenes, her books have plenty of those too!
When she’s not writing she’s spending time with her husband and one-year-old son.
