Laurie Roma lives in Chicago and is the author of the IAD series. She has always loved immersing herself in a good book and now enjoys the pleasure of creating her own. She can usually be found tapping away on her keyboard, creating worlds for her characters while she listens to music. Of course her playlist depends on her mood…but then again, so does her writing.

An avid reader of the romance genre, nothing bothers her more than annoying characters. Seriously, who wants a happy ending for someone that pisses you off? She loves tough alpha-male heroes and strong heroines that have brains as well as beauty. Her novels are filled with both passionate romance and down and dirty lust-driven interludes, as she believes both are essential to a good love story. She loves to hear from her readers and can be reached at [email protected].

Q: What is your idea of a perfect love story?

A: My idea of a perfect love story is that it is never perfect. I think the really interesting stuff can be found in the imperfections. No hero or heroine is completely good and no relationship comes together without road bumps. With that said, no good love story would be complete without a mixture of sweet and spice…the hotter the better!


Q: Where do you get your inspiration?

A: From everywhere…dreams, real life experiences, a very active imagination and a little bit of wishful thinking.


Q. When you're not working on your next novel how do you spend your time?

A: [Laughing] Usually, I am still writing. Besides writing romance novels I am also a screenwriter, creating movie and television scripts. Sorry everyone, Laurie Roma is a pen name…even if you are watching one of my movies right now, you will never know!


Q: What is the best writing advice you can give a fellow writer?

A: Don’t give up. Seriously, don’t ever stop writing. If you have a passion for it–follow your dreams and keep working at it.


Q: What are you currently working on?

A: I am currently working on the next book in the IAD Series and have several more planned. Each of the agents has a story to tell…I just have to find the time to write them! I also have a few paranormal stories and a time travel trilogy that I am playing around with, so wait and see!
