Who Writes Romance Novels?

Who writes romance novels (or novels with romantic elements)?

She’s the school district administrator who also writes college textbooks
She's an accountant
She's an actress
She's an insurance agent
She's a real estate agent
She’s the grandmother who adores her grandkids
She's the lead singer in a rock and roll band
She’s the prison social worker about to get that PhD after her name
She’s a journalist
She’s the psychic who amazes her friends with her accuracy
She’s the president of her own company
She's a lawyer
She’s a pilot
She’s a nurse
She’s a doctor
She’s a college instructor
She’s the stay-home mom who juggles the PTA, soccer games, and a husband
She’s a forensic scientist
She’s a law enforcement officer
She’s a soldier in the military
She’s an elementary school or high school teacher
She’s married, single, divorced, widowed
She’s working in corporate America
She works in sales
She’s a publisher, editor, or agent
Sometimes, she’s not a she, but a he
Or, a writing team of shes

The romance writer is intelligent, creative, insightful, persistent, and passionate. She can’t be picked out of a crowd, but you’ll probably run into her in a bookstore.
Perhaps she is you.
