We’re excited to feature an interview with Paullett Golden on THE EARL AND THE ENCHANTRESS. Enjoy!
Q: What draws you to write historical romance?
I love a good fairy tale! I especially love the unexpected romance when it doesn’t seem there could possibly be a happily ever after, and then somehow it works out, as if by magic.
I do believe there’s not a single moment that defines the happily ever after; for instance, the wedding bells ring, and we know in that moment they’ll live happily ever after, or the hero proposes, and we think by that proposal, all conflicts are pushed aside. I don’t buy that. I believe happily ever after is when we reach a point where we know we can resolve any conflict together.
When I finish reading a romance, I want to know the two characters will be able to tackle anything that comes their way. Despite the happy ending, I know, realistically, there will be disagreements and misunderstandings in the future, but I want to close the book knowing the two characters have established a strong enough foundation and an efficient enough method of communication, that no disagreement is insurmountable.
To me, seeing this, knowing this, gives us hope. I don’t want the completely unrealistic tale. I want the tale that shows us there’s hope for every marriage, every spinster or bachelor, every person who has ever felt broken or hopeless. I want to know we can all craft our own happily ever after.
