You've found the home on the net for romance writer, LaVerne Clark. Thanks for visiting! :)

I write suspense and light fantasy/paranormal set in the beautiful country of New Zealand. A land of myths and magic, Aotearoa (Maori for Long White Cloud) has always been a storytelling nation and it is my pleasure to share mine with you.

Make yourself your drink of choice, stay a while and feel free to leave comments. I love to meet new friends.

What Do Romance Writers Look Like?

Rowrrr!! What a bunch of gorgeous girlies : )
Nelson Branch of Romance Writers of NZ
L-R Sally Ash, Cherie Le Clare, LaVerne Clark, Annika Ohlson-Smith

This was meant to be used for an article our group starred in for a very beautiful, glossy Nelson magazine called Wild Tomato, with the caption being Romancing the Stones but they went for something a little more homely in the end. Shame. I think it's a pretty cool photo and probably suits us - we're all a little bit quirky!

What does a Romance Writer look like? Are they glamorous women dressed up to the nines on the off-chance a handsome hero will come and sweep them off their feet? Or are they greasy-haired women sitting around in house-coats, dark circles under eyes fixed on a computer screen with mind's a world away from the one they're actually inhabiting? I don't know about you, but I tend to agree with the latter unfortunately, which makes dressing up for the photo-shoot above a whole lot of fun. Doesn't matter that it was freezing cold and our walk to that spot was ridiculously dangerous in high heels and my daughter was crying the whole time just out of shot. We looked GREAT, we had a lot of giggles and we escaped the everyday routine to act as supermodels for a while. What fun!
