Doesn’t life throw out some weird twists and turns to make the day-to-day interesting? For instance, in 2010, I chose to enter a contest from the Wild Rose Press and ended up publishing with them for a number of years. Eventually, I decided to move on and take over control of my career.
Today, as a NY Times & USA Today Indie author, I have over fifty-five books for sale, plus a number of box collections. I started my first series while with the Wild Rose and ended up with eight more. See here om my Amazon Author Page: Amazon.com: Mimi Barbour
The first two are considered paranormal and have variations that make them quite different. For instance, I don’t write time-travel… but I kinda do. I call it spirit-travel, and it’s a whole lot more fun when you have two characters vying for one body – especially if they fall in love. And my angel books are surprising because it’s hard to tell the difference from these celestial beings to the humans they help.
Of course, like most romantics, I have to write the occasional contemporary romance, and my puppy stories are a good example, and so are some of the single titles you’ll see on my book page.
Once I moved on to writing Romantic Suspense, I found my niche. I love this fast-paced, conflict-driven type of story, and so it’s not surprising that I’d enjoy writing them too. My latest book called Special Agent Makayla is getting wonderful reviews, so I guess the fact that I found myself totally wrapped up in the manuscript shows. Gotta admit - I'm still in love with Murphy, the book I wrote for my late husband.
A lot has happened in my life in the last few years. I lost my parents and my wonderful mate, moved from a big old barn of a house into a smaller, new home and have started the next phase of my life with a puppy who’s turned into a wonderful companion. Taking things one day at a time, life is settling into a comfortable pattern… and I’m happy.
I hope you’re all as lucky.
