Falling in Love Without Falling into Bed

That is the title of the speech I’m doing today at the Oklahoma Book Festival in Oklahoma City at the OK City University so I’ve been thinking about the use of graphic sex in books. I’ve so enjoyed writing for Love Inspired because there isn’t any graphic sex. The emphasis is on showing how two people fall in love–the steps that lead to a strong bond emotionally. Instead of throwing in a love scene to show two people growing closer (at least physically), I look for ways to show them coming together emotionally, to show them developing a deep friendship that will weather times of crisis. That to me is important in a marriage because there will be times of crisis. So if you are in Oklahoma City today, stop by and say hi. I’m speaking at 3 o’clock and signing my books at noon.
