Paranormal Romance, Anyone?

The New York Times in its Sunday Book Review has a short piece by Gregory Cowles on the paranormal romance author Christine Feehan. Her latest novel Dark Wolf is No. 3 on the hardcover fiction list. I don't read paranormal romance, so I had never heard of Ms. Feehan and was surprised to see that this is the twenty-fifth book in her "Dark" series. In fact, she has published over forty novels, including the "Ghostwalker" and "Leopard" series.

Ms. Feehan started writing steamy love scenes in middle school when she was thirteen, but delayed publishing her work for a long time. She spent more than twenty years working as a martial arts instructor. For the full text of the article, please click here.

One thing is for sure: if she can write twenty-five novels in a series and still be near the top of the bestseller list, someone must be reading them.

If you're a fan of paranormal romance, I'd be interested in hearing from you on why this type of novel is currently so popular.
