What ingredient makes a great romantic comedy
Laughter! And more laughter! Makes any comedy a success, but when you combine love with laughter it becomes a blockbuster!
With any story, the combination of elements: characters, plot, story, and setting, with a twist of humor artfully designed can make it a great success. Most importantly though, the reader must care about the characters, identify with some of what they are going through, and cheer them on to win!
I remember when the brilliant Susan Elizabeth Phillips coined the six words to bestsellerdom: ‘make the reader part of it’. In other words, a story, in this case a romantic comedy must engage the reader with something the reader can identify with. It could be what the heroine is struggling with, or what the hero is conflicted about, and their feelings, passion; but sometimes, the relatable point of contact between reader and characters need not be so deep…it could be as simple as a career choice, a bad hair day, or a beloved pet that makes the reader smile or laugh. It is at this point of relatabiity with the characters that the reader becomes fully engaged in the story and cheers the hero/heroine to overcome all obstacles/dangers and get to their happily ever after.
With Italian Millionaire, Runaway Principessa I wanted the story to be fun but with enough angst that readers could relate to or know someone who might. As for Peter, the hero, and Ellie, the heroine, I imagined them, started writing and they were ‘born’! I want the reader to be entertained, so although my characters are usually ordinary people doing extraordinary things, I like to make them bigger than life, and their love story not ‘how it is’, but ‘how it can be’…exciting, beautiful, and dreamy…magical!
Thank you so much, Sun!

Tug-a-war between the sexes!
Infamous Italian neurosurgeon, Peter Medeci, has a score to settle with his estranged wife: her reckless bid for independence has nearly destroyed his medical career.
Ellie, desperate to reassert herself as more than his bedroom playmate, flees the ‘fairytale’ for a gig in a Hollywood club until Peter comes looking for her. For her freedom, Ellie must spend the next three weeks being the ‘good doctor’s wife’ in public…and his mistress in private!
