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 DAUGHTER OF FIRE.
My heroine, Kalama Young, is Hawaiian. Her lover, Jack O'Connor, is a big strapping Thor-like man. In the first book of this series, KONA WARRIOR, both main characters are full-blooded Hawaiian. Let's face it, there is just something so very sexy about a bronze-skinned surf god who can do the hula.
While the Hawaiian paranormals and contemporaries I write may not fit into the stereotypical multicultural vein, they are in fact just that. When Emphi 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.
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.
