As an author of love stories, I tend not to rely on broad shoulders and heaving bosoms. Instead, I go into the protagonists' thoughts and emotions, and how those show their growth. My novels deal with protagonists' insecurities and disappointments, love/hate relationships with parents, characters who seem to behave out-of-character, and even life events not typically included in romantic fiction. My stories do have happy epilogues, and I've tried to work in intriguing plotlines into them.
As Evy Journey, I have a book blog (http://www.margaretofthenorth.wordpress.com) and a blog on art, food, travel (mostly Paris), and state of being (http://eveonalimb.com). My author website is http://www.evyjourney.com
