Last week I went on a crazy search via internet for one of the first romance novels I ever read. (I was about eleven when I read it). I found it and it arrived today. I had to read it immediately! I blog about how I realized this book from 1987 has actually influenced my style of writing to this day!

I wrote a blog post about when you need to tell, rather than show, because no-one would be able to see into characters minds otherwise:

Telling Instead of Showing - Because none of us can read minds

In light of recent news that a remake is in the works in Hollywood, I discuss the original movie, the novel, and the prospect of that remake.
