Profile_pictureJen: Please help me give a Sondrae Bennett a warm welcome to Romancing the Book! Sondrae, will you share a short bio with us?
Sondrae: I love romance. I love reading romance, living romance, but I especially love writing romance. There’s no greater feeling than watching my characters come alive in each other’s arms. Most of all, I love giving my characters the happily ever afters they deserve, with a little necessary drama first.

My love of reading developed at a young age. When other girls went to the mall to buy clothes, I headed straight for the bookstore. Reading a good book still gives me such a rush, transporting me time and again into a different world. One of my favorite things is picking up a new book and sinking into the story, immersing myself in the emotions between the characters. To put myself in the place of the heroine, and fall in love with the hero, cursing the day I reach the last page because it means the end of my adventure. At least until I pick up the next book and fall in love all over again. I hope someday to inspire readers the same way my favorite authors have inspired me.

Who Has a Best Seller?

Wild Marauders MC is a best seller! Well, for at least a minute. I’ve never been one to follow stuff like that but I found myself there yesterday, surprised to see that Wild Marauders MC was ranked #66 on Amazon’s best sellers list for erotica romance! Then it quickly dropped to #71, and as I write this it’s #83. How cool is that?

Do I have the right to say I’m a bestselling author? It seems almost everyone is today. At least according to the covers of their books. What defines a bestselling author? According to Wikipedia “Best-selling” refers to the estimated number of copies sold of all fiction books written or co-written by an author. Another article I found when I was looking up the definition of an Amazon bestselling author was in the Warner Coaching Newsletter. Interesting article. According to them, Amazon’s list is based on sales from its own site, which we all know they update every hour. So authors can claim they are Amazon bestsellers, but for only a short time.

Max grew up just outside of New York City, spending most of her formative years outdoors creating wild ghost hunts with neighborhood kids, setting booby-traps to capture unwitting family members, and building clubhouses on top of ten-foot walls. Max wrote her first story at the age of twelve and titled it Circles of Friendship. Through the years, Max has written several short-stories and poems, all of which met the wrath of the “Not Good Enough” monster and ended in fiery demise.

Max regained her confidence when she began writing scholarly articles and research theses on her first trip through graduate school. It took several years for her to break the habit of the formal writing that marred her creativity. An additional Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing was Max’s biggest support in this. Max writes primarily sci-fi/fantasy, paranormal romance, and Young Adult stories.

Lia Risso, the heroine of Susceptible to Him, is a fiery Italian woman who adores good food—and wine. She’s the type of girl who goes out for dinner on a first date and devours every bite of her pasta before licking the last smear of cannoli cream from her fork. Not one to pass up extra carbs, she’ll enjoy a few pieces of torn, crusty bread dipped in olive oil as well.

A girl after my own heart. A girl whose womanly figure is exactly what Ryan Walsh, our hero, enjoys.
