Day 13 Emma Chase – All Things Are Possible

Tale as Old as Time

Why romance?Tangled Red Cover

I was asked this question once soon after my first novel, Tangled, was published. It wasn’t a difficult question to answer at the time.

Because I love it.

Reading it, writing it, experiencing that moment when the words disappear from the page and I see the story play out in my mind – feel it in my heart.

Simple enough.

Until – like a persistent four year old – the follow-up question came.

But why do you love it?

This one gave me pause – because it was easy to know, more difficult to explain. What is it about romance that keeps us all coming back for more? No matter how many books we read, or write?

Is it the happy ending? The dashing (and sometimes not-so-dashing) heroes? The beautiful heroines? The clever banter? The sex scenes?

Yes. I enjoy all those things in romance. But more than any of them – it’s the love.Tamed cover final

I am an author and a reader in love with love. Love is magical. Mysterious. Love is adventure and power. Sometimes it’s borderline obsession – a sickness. More often, it’s the cure. Love is sexy and fun. Joyous.

Romance allows us to have those experiences – feel all the feels – without any of the trappings or constraints of reality. Whether it’s to a land far, far away, a New York City high-rise or Regency England, we’re taken on a thrilling journey without ever leaving the safety of our couch or beach chair. We’re given a brief escape from dishes, bills and errands without the worry of being irresponsible – because it’ll all still be there when we close the book or power down the e-reader.

We cry the tears, laugh out loud and taste the passion. In romance all things are possible. Because love makes anything – everything – worth it.

“The human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”

– John Keating, Dead Poet’s Society

Questions For The Author

Describe the most daring, adventurous or inspiring thing you ever did.

One of the most daring and inspiring things I’ve ever done is writing and publishing a novel. Even though it was fiction, I had come to care for the characters and loved the story. Putting my work out there while knowing that not everyone would love it the way I did (because we all have different perspectives and tastes) was difficult. Nerve-racking. But ultimately amazing & wonderful.

Also – the most adventurous thing I’ve ever done is parasailing. In Mexico. I have a terrible fear of heights, but I wanted to experience it at least once. And I’m glad I did…but I’ll never do it again :o)

Tell us about your journey to becoming a writer. (How did you decide to get started? Did you always know or was there a specific moment when you knew?)

I’ve enjoyed telling and writing stories my entire life. Though I’ve had a variety of interests and hobbies, writing was always a constant – through grade school, high school, college and adulthood.

After my children were born, I stopped writing for a few years because there simply wasn’t enough hours in the day. When they got a little older, I was able to take a creative writing course at a local college – just for fun. An assignment from that class inspired a scene that became part of the first chapter of my first published romantic comedy – and I haven’t stopped writing since.

Tell us about A Book That Changed Your Life. (Why?)

There have been a few books that affected my life, but the one that really changed it the most was Tangled. I was thrilled & humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response when Tangled was released. Tangled’s success has allowed me to write full-time, work with amazing people in the publishing industry and share more of my stories with readers. It’s been an incredible experience.
