1.  What ages are your characters?

My heroes and heroines are younger (18-30) because, especially in the past, people didn’t live as long.

2.  What special things or places inspire you to write?

That’s a difficult question to answer.  I derive inspiration from movies, plays, music, books and sometimes, just having a conversation.  Stories of history, the news and people watching also provide fodder.  As a writer, I think I filter life through my written words most of the time.

3.  What is the one message you hope women will receive when they read your stories?

That just because it looks bad today, doesn’t mean it won’t be great tomorrow.  That love may not conquer all, but it sure gives you the strength to fight the good fight.  That we are all beautiful and there is someone for all of us.  That romance should never die.  And mostly, that good is always better than evil.  And cliches aren’t tired if they make sense.

Let’s see how Carolyn Spear answered these questions, shall we? Carolyn Spear

And we love your comments!!!!

    My “historical” characters are younger as well. I think that makes sense to be concurrent with the time period.

  2. Those are cliches, those are inspirations!

  4. What a great line: Cliché’s aren’t tired if they make sense.

    It’s very interesting how historical novels limit the age group for romance. Not being a historical romance author, I hadn’t really thought that through before. Now I am imagining women going through such a lot in that brief period when love first blooms. Great answers!
