How Katherine Garbera Fell in Love with Romance

Dance with the Devil final
I started reading romance when I was thirteen years old. I had spent spring break with my Grandparents in Okeechobee and my great aunt passed away before I was supposed to go home.  So my uncle came to get me and I spent the weekend with him (my parents and younger sisters were away at a swim meet) and he took me to a flea market where I picked up Johanna Lindsey’s Fires in Winter to read on the bus (my grandparents owned a Greyhound Bus franchise and we could ride for free!) back to my hometown where my dad would pick me up…gosh, that’s a long story. ☺

I wasn’t sure what I was going to get in the book but it was addicting.  I LOVED it and as soon as I finished it my mom gave me some Harlequin Presents novels that she had and I read them too. I was hooked.  I’d take the books my mom and her friend Mrs. Loftin would pass to me to the new-and-used bookstore and trade them in for more books. I was reading at least 5 books a week.

These books were entertainment but they were also a little bit educational. I was learning how to be a strong women as much from the books I read as from the women in my life (my mom and  my grandmother).  The heroines in romance novels never let anything stand in their way and they knew they were worthy of hero’s love.  They knew that if the hero was worthy of them then he would admit his love and treat them well.

When the movie Romancing The Stone came out my mom took me to see it since she knew I loved reading romance novels and that was the first time I realized that real women wrote them.  And from that moment on in the back my mind was the thought that one day I’d write one.  One day I’d be the one writing stories that inspired a new generation of woman.
