New Adult is a relatively new genre that primarily deals with young men and women between the ages of 18 and 24, during that time in their lives when they're in major transition. For the purposes of Defiance, the hero and heroines in my series are also struggling with a major world catastrophe, as well as trying to live within the confines of the motorcycle club culture, all while trying to find themselves and their place in the world. Also, New Adult books don't necessarily need to be romance, but the Defiance series is most definitely romance.
The Defiance series is a New Adult post apocalyptic motorcycle clbook. I originally pitched it as Sons of Anarchy meets the apocalypsand it deals with a struggle between the older and younger generatiof the Defiance MC and their struggles to survive after a massiseries of storms named the Chaos.
Though I've been writing paranormal romance as Sydney Croft for years, my Stephanie Tyler paranormal series is a totally different kind of book. The Eternal Wolf Clan series is about the immortal Dire Wolves, who have all served in the military during their centuries on earth.
Romantic Suspense is one of my favorites to read and to write – its alpha males and strong heroines facing danger and finding love despite all the obstacles. I prefer writing a equal balance of romance and suspense – and all my heroes are military or former military – SEALs (the Hold Trilogy), Delta Force (The Shadow Force Series) with several Marines, Rangers and CIA / FBI agents mixed in for good measure.
Stephanie's next Romantic Suspense series, Section 8, will involve military heroes, intrigue and action. The first book, Surrender, is set in New Orleans and the hero is Dare O'Rourke. More information will be posted here and on the blog.
