Love is in the air – an open letter from Mandy Magro

by |November 6, 2013

Bestselling author of rural romance Mandy Magro writes an open letter about the importance of love, in fiction and in everyday life

Let me begin by saying I love writing about love…no, actually, I’m obsessed with it! I write about it, I read about it, I watch it, and I live it! I’m a firm believer in true love, and that there is a soulmate out there for each and every one of us. So if you haven’t found him or her yet, or your busy lifestyle isn’t allowing you time to be romantic with your soulmate…don’t give up!

Being a true romantic at heart, I reckon there is always time in our busy lives to ‘stop and smell the roses’. That flame we all feel when we first meet someone can always be rekindled, if we just grant ourselves time away from the everyday demands of life to spend some quality time with our beloved. It’s amazing what a romantic getaway can achieve, even if it means sleeping in a tent in the back yard to get away from the kids, a couple of candles lit for the ambience. Just make sure you don’t burn the tent down!

I feel so very blessed to be a published romance author, my written words touching many reader’s hearts. To be able to express on paper the way two people are falling in love, and in turn evoke a wide range of emotions from my reader, is a very powerful thing.

I love the journey my characters take me on in my novels, the highs of falling in love, the ups and downs of their relationship along the way, the all important first kiss, and of course, the very first time they make love. I’m a ‘leave the bedroom door wide open’ style of writer, these scenes being my favourite to write.

Romantic fiction is one of the biggest selling genres in the world. Some might ask why, others know precisely why. It’s human nature to want to feel loved, to be in love… the kind of ‘take your breath away’ love sought after by billions all over the world. So let’s share the love by reading romance, because let’s face it, love is what makes the world go round!
