PNR author Amber Kallyn is here, talking about fate… and giving us the skinny on her new book BloodStorm. Please help me welcome her to the blog!
Fate or luck?
I grew up watching Disney movies like most little girls. While I never got the whole ‘wait in your tower until studly rides up and saves you’ heroines, I adore knights in shining armor.
Finally movies and books started to get on track. Heroines changed from helpless, waiting princess into independent women who have no problems kicking butt all on their own.
I was caught.
As I grew older and stumbled into that horrid stage known as the teenage years, romance novels became my guidepost for love. Every time a hero or heroine met their soul mate, they just knew they’d found the other half–even if they tried to run or got dragged into it kicking and screaming
Finding the one person for you can be a difficult feat in such a huge world, but oh so rewarding. And for me, reading about characters finding their soul mate, overcoming all odds and falling in love totally rocks.
Recently I’ve seen discussions on how some romance writers get their characters to meet. Some call it luck, others call it Fate.
To me, it’s all the same. Call it Fate, destiny, Chance or Luck.
All romances center around two people finding each other among the millions of bodies on this–or whatever planet they may be on. These two individuals are right for each other, and no one else.
And to me, one of the reasons I love romances so much is that it’s no longer the pretty little ‘Oh, you rescued me’ ending, but both parties have to go through many trials and changes in order to be worthy of this love.

One of those rare breeds, Amber Kallyn is an Arizona native who can trace her family’s history through six generations in the state. She lives with her sexy husband, and their four very active children. Included in the menagerie are two cats (though there’s always room for more) and two dogs. We won’t count all the fish.
Amber loves the paranormal, from dragons to werewolves to vampires. She’s currently at work on her next book, probably running around the house acting out a fight scene with her collection of swords and daggers. Or maybe, wishing she had claws to practice the other fight scenes.
A voracious lover of the written word, Amber found at an early age that she could read fast. Really fast. She devours novels by the day, novellas by the hour, and is always looking to get her hands on more.
