Nope wait, I think we need to go back even further. To 2001 when a little-known Canadian author named Kelley Armstrong published her first Women of the Otherworld book called “Bitten,” which was turned into a TV show a few years ago. It was really my first introduction to an action-packed, paranormal-being populated world with a female lead and a really incredible hot male hero. She had the best forum for writing on her website, and I visited often and got a lot of advice and information there. Kelley even blurbed my first published book “Hell Kat,” which Kensington Publishing published in 2005 under my pen name Vivi Anna. I think Kelley is one of the most underrated authors out there.
My love affair with paranormal romance started, as it always does, with a few talented women. To know when it all started, we’d have to go back… way back to 2005.
