Romance is NOT just a modern idea!!!

When I first felt the call to write romance (Yes I consider it my calling), I read so many articles on the internet from Christians saying romance novels and fiction of any kind were ungodly. It made me wonder if these people and I were reading the same Bible.

Love, Desire, Passion. God made them. Yes, Satan has corrupted them but their existence is because of God.

Plus, I've always viewed the Bible itself as following the style of an epic romance. The King/Prince (God/Jesus) is in love with a lowly commoner (us humans), and rescues their love interest from the villain (Satan).

Maybe I connect the two because at age 17 I fell in love with my man and my God at the same time. It's a long story and I'll share it here some time, but as a child I needed to be rescued. I called out to God and He began to whisper to me stories of my future and the man I would fall in love with. And then at 17, it all happened as promised. So to me love, God, romance and supernatural involvement are one and the same. So that's how I write.

What do you think? I'd love to hear it.
