I write romance that lands in many genres, but it always amazes me when a book I have written is considered Multicultural, like my novel HAWAIIAN GUARDIAN.
My heroine,Gloria Grant, is half-Hawaiian and half-white. Her lover, Mano, is a full-blooded Hawaiian surf god. Well, he's more of a shark god but you get the idea. In the Second book of this series, FIRE GUARDIAN, I have Hawaiian, English, and a hot Thor like scientist to appease all you romance goddesses out there. Let's face it, there is just something so very sexy about a bronze-skinned surf god who can do the hula.
Also the appeal of Hawaiian mythology is just to rich to pass up. I'd read way to many books set in Hawaii that didn't have a single Hawaiian character. Or if they did, the character was always a sidekick or comic relief. So that, maninis (little ones in Hawaiian to all you newcomers to the blog) is why I write multicultural romance
While the multicultural paranormals and contemporaries I write may not fit into the stereotypical multicultural vein, they are in fact just that. My characters are spread out over a myriad of nationalities. When Empi asks us to write about why we wrote our featured Multicultural book the answer was easy for me. I write what I love to read. I love men, in all shapes and sizes and races. Nikki Prince and I had this same discussion at a recent conference we both attended. We write what we like. I write men I would fall in love with.
I want to say thank you to Empi, Nana, and the CoL blog hop team for asking me to particapte in this fantastic event!
