Local romance author, Annette Francine, has just released her debut novel “From the Shadows.”

After writing romance intended for traditional publishers but finding she could not sufficiently suppress the Christian elements in her stories to suit those editors, Annette finally subjected herself to her muse.

She prefers to write what she likes to read, but supposes she may have a twisted perception. Annette wants the steamy attraction and passion of a sensual romance, but she was bored with seeing a love scene every third scene. Yet the ‘inspirational’ romances she’s picked up haven’t had that sensual kick that she enjoys. Her characters mess up. They have a long way to go toward achieving spiritual perfection, and her storylines reflect that struggle. While certainly not her intention to offend the Christian brethren, the characters and the plots don’t always reflect good examples of Christian behavior, or necessarily her own attitudes.

Annette commits at least half her proceeds from her books to Care, St Mary’s Food Bank and the Wounded Warriors Project. Visit www.annettefrancine.com for more information.

Annette and her husband moved from California to Ahwatukee in 1983 and then into the Foothills in 1995. She joined The Phoenix Chapter of Romance Writers of America in 1994.
