Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
I’m AJ Renee and I’m a romance author who loves happily ever afters. I’m a military wife and mother of three little girls who I adore and drive me nuts. I fell in love with reading after I was given The Secret by Julie Garwood. School always forced reading and while there were a few I enjoyed, it made me resent reading. Now I look forward to falling in love with a good book.
When and Why did you start to write?
I started writing almost four years ago. My best friend passed suddenly and the fact that she never got her own happily ever after nagged at me. An idea popped into my head and wouldn’t go away until I sat down and started working it out into the first draft of Widower’s Aura. I never planned on publishing it. It was for me and it was a form of grief therapy, but things kind of snow balled after that.
What authors do you always read or suggest to others?
Julie Garwood, Nora Roberts, Kathleen Brooks, HJ Bellus, Carina Adams, and too many others to count. If I loved it, my friends heard about it.
What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?
That you can’t force it. The characters write themselves.
What are you working on now?
My first paranormal romance.
When writing are you a pantser or plotter?
I’m a mix. If I plot too much than I find myself unable to write. I know where I want to go but there are many times that my characters surprise me with a twist. I think this makes it more fun and even addicting for me. I want to know what is going to happen.
