Author Spotlight: Bonnie Vanak, by Caris Roane

Hi, Everyone!  Today, I'm introducing Bonnie Vanak who is a wonderful writer and an inspiring woman!

In Bonnie's words:

After graduating from the University of Florida with a journalism degree, I worked as a newspaper reporter. After, tired of simply reporting the news, I became a
writer for a large international charity. My work for 18 years took me to countries like Haiti and Honduras to write about famine, disease and other issues affecting the poor. Humanitarian jobs are fulfilling, but emotionally draining. The work is for a good cause, but the pressure can be enormous.

So to counter the suffering I encountered in my travels, I began writing romance novels. My first romance novel, The Falcon & the Dove, was about a handsome Egyptian sheikh protecting a treasure hidden in the sands for centuries. He meets his match in the lovely American who comes to Egypt to unearth the treasure. The Falcon & the Dove won the historical category of the 2001 RWA Melody of Love contest. A year later, it was published by Dorchester Publishing.

Today I write paranormal romances for Harlequin. It gives me great joy to write romance novels and create characters who struggle to learn who they are, and how to connect with one another. My books usually contain adventure and action as well, and I insist on one thing.

There's always a happy ending. No matter what hardships the hero and heroine face, the conflict will be resolved in the end and their love will overcome the odds. Because in the end, I believe that love is the most powerful force in the universe. It can make magic happen, renew faith, and give hope for a better tomorrow. As the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said, "Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."
