Carmen is a romantic-suspense, Paranormal writer whose stories overflow with romance, mystery, suspense, with a hint of paranormal , and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a great story be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of her novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope. Although some of her titles clearly include supernatural or ghostly beings, her writing dances on the edge of the paranormal, in a genre referred to as magical realism. Carmen’s hope is that as you read her stories, you’ll wonder, “Hmmm…what if?” Carmen says, As most authors, I blame my leap into a full-time career as a professional writer on my love of reading. Reading has always been an escape for me. When life was rough as a child, I could always disappear into a book. But I found something else too… I discovered that writing out my thoughts was healing. Not only could I create hope for my protagonists, but I could do away with the antagonists–legally. When I penned my first novel, ‘She Belongs to Me’, I allowed only my cousin and best friend to read it. They are the reason I write. They pushed me to publish, as they felt my stories would give others who’ve experienced tragedies hope. So now, even though I still write for me, I mainly write for my readers who continually encourage me that my words touched their soul.Most of my novels share some of my favorite hobbies, mostly, anything to do with the great outdoors. I rarely spend my days off at a movie theater or the mall. In fact, I hate shopping, and my hubby would prefer to do anything other than taking me to a film that I’d already read the book. 🙂 Also, we both would rather read a book on the beach–or a coffee shop if it’s raining–and if the weather is nice, we love to go kayaking and hiking.
