Men Writing Romance.

At the Tucson Festival of Books, I was on a panel with two other male romance writers.  The title of the panel, was “Do You Know Your Romance Writer?”

One of the things brought up was some of the women who write romances look askance at men writing them.

Ninety-Eight per cent of Romance Writers are women.  Most male Romance writers use pen names and or initials for their names.

I am putting together a workshop with the idea of men writing romance.  I want the title to be Men Write Romance?

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.

    Thanks for the ping back my sweet. I’m owning my romantic/erotic writing. Especially after I found out one of my stories was published by Ether Books.
