Get in a Valentine’s Day state of mind and meet local, bestselling romance authors Asa Maria Bradley, Katee Robert and Rebecca Zanetti — Bradley writes about sexy Vikings, Robert has published dozens of steamy titles, and Zanetti is known for her dark paranormal plots. The trio plan to share some of their personal writing techniques and tips, as well their top suggestions for titles and authors to add to your reading list. Don’t overlook the diversity and incredible popularity of the romance genre — it’s one of top categories in fiction, and its readers can’t (and shouldn’t) be lumped into stereotypes.
