Elements of a Fairy Tale

A fairy tale begins with the proposition of romance. Whether the characters are a prince and a princess, a chef and a frog or a pair of naval aviators, each needs the other to save them. While fairy tales do not always emphasize the role each plays in saving the other, the couple in question is a potential savior and lover for each other.

Cinderella’s prince faced a loveless match, a marriage forced on […]

Laughter is the Best Romance

Welcome to the Valentine’s Day Blog Tour 2010! I hope you enjoyed stopping by Mariana Blaser’s blog and I’m delighted to have you here today. I wanted to take this time to talk to you about laughter.

Pure Romance

Pure romance is the key to a successful adventure. I love romance novels. I grew up reading my grandmother’s harlequins from Penny Jordan to Nora Roberts and many, many more. Romance is important to every kind of storytelling because it’s at the heart of who we are. Humans crave connections — we want to be close to other people — so whether we’re fighting an empire a few hundred galaxies away, journeying through Stargates, riding magical horses that can speak or fighting dragons on the wring — we can all relate to romance, to the hunger for love, human companionship, […]
