How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
In writing Dangerous Pride I tried to stay within the typical boundaries of the genre. There’s something very satisfying about knowing what to expect when you pick up a certain type of novel — like sliding into a comfortable pair of slippers. I wanted Dangerous Pride to emulate the tone, style and feel of the historical romances I’ve loved over the years.
So, no major rule-breaking here! We’ll save that for the next book.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t get discouraged. And keep writing! Nothing you ever do will please everyone…but if you do your best and are true to your own vision you will please yourself.
Eve Cameron has been an avid reader of fiction since the age of 10. Her love of the written word is steadfast, undaunted by the over-zealous librarian who thought it improper for a girl to be reading Ellery Queen mysteries at such a tender age.
Thankfully, the librarian’s tattling to her parents had little impact, and today Eve always has at least five books on the go. Her early love of crime fiction has expanded to include an interest in most any genre — biographies, science fiction, romance, mysteries, history and the paranormal.
After reading Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, Eve was immediately hooked on the historical romance genre. Dangerous Pride is her first foray into fiction, and reflects her love of the genre and the historical details she unearthed while researching her family’s Scottish roots.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have been an avid reader of fiction since the ripe old age of 10. As an adult, I discovered historical fiction with Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series and I was immediately hooked on the genre.
About the same time, I got seriously interested in genealogy, and became fascinated with Scottish history. I traced our roots back to the 1700s in Scotland, and used many of the family names and locations I uncovered in the plot of Dangerous Pride.
