About this author

Zoe Archer is an award-winning romance author who thinks there's nothing sexier than a man in tall boots and a waistcoat. As a child, she never dreamed about being the rescued princess, but wanted to kick butt right beside the hero. She now applies her master's degrees in Literature and Fiction to creating butt-kicking heroines and heroes in tall boots. She is the author of the acclaimed BLADES OF THE ROSE series and the paranormal historical romance series, THE HELLRAISERS. She and her husband, fellow romance author Nico Rosso, trade off writing the books in the steampunk romance series THE ETHER CHRONICLES. June 2013 will see the launch of her new gritty Victorian romance series, NEMESIS, UNLIMITED for St. Martin's Press. Zoe and Nico liv ...more

Yes, chemistry is involved, but when agency is removed and it becomes a matter of simply being told that a couple should be together, or that one of the pair believed they are meant to be in a relationship, then I have little faith in the relationship actually lasting beyond the end of the book. I also think it does a tremendous disservice to women to enforce notions that they themselves don't know their own hearts and minds, and that through sheer will, a man can "make" them fall in love with them--as though women are passive, childlike objects rather than fully actualized human beings. When there is parity between the two protagonists (regardless of gender), then the relationship is based on mutual respect, which, to me, is a stronger foundation, and that's where love can truly grow.(less)
Zoe Archer Three things--the first is read. Read a ton. That's the best way to get a feel for what's out there, what resonates with you, and what doesn't work.…moreThree things--the first is read. Read a ton. That's the best way to get a feel for what's out there, what resonates with you, and what doesn't work. Secondly, join the Romance Writers of America. It's a great organization geared towards advancing writers in their careers with tons of useful information, support, and guidance. Third, and most important, is to write. The only way you can move from a "wanna be" to "author" is to do it. Every day. Make a schedule. Stick to it. Let other people read it. An unread manuscript can't become a book.

Hope that helps!(less)
