I don’t really lead a secret life, but there are other sides to the writer who is Starla Kaye. Under this pen name I’m most known for my romance stories in various sub-genres, although anything to do with cowboys is my first love.
Romantic relationships have always fascinated me. I’m a Disney lover at heart, with Beauty and the Beast being my favorite. But I love Little Mermaid, too. They are wonderful, complicated love stories with happily-ever-afters like I enjoy so much.
Occasionally I like to have fun with writing light-hearted stories about slightly different romantic relationships than I normally write as Starla Kaye. Years ago as part of a writing exercise in a writers group that I belong to, I started writing little snippets of stories about an adventurous, fun loving cow named Blossom. Being a romantic at heart, I had to give Blossom a romantic relationship, too. Ferdinand, a big, sometimes grumbly bull, is the bull of her life. To go along with my stories, I have several stuffed Blossoms and my main one has a number of costumes, which I use as inspiration at times.
I also write women’s fiction about romantic relationships over age 55, under a different name. My first anthology of five short stories, Timeless Love, was published last year with Amazon. But I give this book away to anyone who lets me know they want one. I have given a lot of these books away already to senior adults in my community and will continue to do so. If you want a copy of the paperback or ebook, let me know at [email protected]
Lastly, I write incredibly mediocre poetry.
