I'm Carolyn Spear and I write paranormal and contemporary romance. As a kid, I dreamed of being Samantha and Jeannie. The idea of twitching my nose or nodding my head to clean my room or do the dishes was intriguing. I find magic everywhere in nature. The woods, the river, the beach were where I feel utterly connected with the earth. Native cultures on every continent understand the the relationships between the spiritual and physical realms. I constantly look for patterns in everything and find more similarities than differences in the world's belief systems.

Violet Heart: Writing isn't just what I do. It's who I am. I write erotic romance because the characters intrigue me. It's an edgy genre with tough heroes and feisty heroines. This genre gives me an opportunity to work with truly damaged characters who find strength deep within to overcome their failings.
My paranormal historical short stories are so much fun to write. There's not a lot of this subgenre on the market, so my imagination can go wild. My longer contemporary works involve characters with serious internal conflict and pasts that have left them grasping for any kind of control they can find. This control, as in real life, often comes through physical contact. Website: www.violetheartbooks.com Facebook: @VioletHeart
