I’ve been reading romance and mostly historical romance for about 30 years now. My husband and I are bibliophiles with over 350 linear feet of books and a shortage of walls for bookcases. As a stay-at-home mom with two teens, I’ve had plenty of free time to read while waiting to pick them up.
None of my writing published yet, but I’m working to change that! I started writing seriously again in the fall of 2007 but life has provided many interruptions. I am currently working on querying agents and submitting to editors. In the meantime, I’ve been collecting a lot of research and answering questions about the sub-genre which led to my Regency Primer Series.
Now, I’m not an extrovert, but I play one on-line. If you’re wondering who “Kaige” is, well, that’s me… in college my initials were K. J. and a friend slurred them to sound like “cage”. Another friend just spelled it like “Paige” and as a result that became my nickname and online persona for years.
To learn more about writing and romance in particular, I joined real world groups like RWA on the national level and the local level in San Diego. I’ve also embraced online networking through Facebook, Twitter and the fabulously knowledgeable Beau Monde, the online RWA chapter which specializes in Regency Romance Fiction.
My background is in business, economics and game design, which just might explain my theoretical tendencies. Puzzles are designed to be solved and plots seem like they’re just huge puzzles waiting to be conquered. Must. Solve. Puzzle.
My grandfather was a professional photographer and the shutterbug runs strong in the family. I’m loving the flexibility of my digital SLR camera! A couple friends and I did a 366 Photo Challenge in 2012. (Flickr set) and I did better than I’d expected with sticking to it. I’ve also tried my hand on a 52 Week project or two since. Way less pressure!
