Welcome to Romance Novel TV. If you want to know a bit about us first thing you need to know is that we’re identical twins. Sometimes we walk alike and talk alike – but we definitely don’t think alike, and that’s precisely what makes life interesting around here.
Our love of romance books keeps us reading, talking, discussing, explaining and even arguing long into the night. We both have our favorite go to authors and we both love to discover new authors. Maria doesn’t re-read books; Marisa has a keeper shelf filled with her go to comfort reads. Maria loves woman’s fiction, time travel and westerns; Marisa loves contemporaries, erotica and paranormals. Maria loves a good friends to lovers story line, Marisa loves the time tested rags to riches story line. Maria will read her e-books on her iPhone, Marisa reads her e-books on her Kindle. Maria loves to share her favorite new book with Marisa and vice versa.
When Maria is interviewing an author she loves to get to know the behind the scenes stories about why an author writes a book and the intimacies of their lives; Marisa wants to know more about the book and what’s coming next. When Marisa edits an interview she goes to Maria for help, a lot. Maria is fast and Marisa is slow. Maria is quick to make a decision; Marisa likes to mull things over. Maria is aggressive, Marisa let’s people think she’s not.
The one thing we definitely agree on is that if we were stuck on a desert island we both hope that a giant box of romance novels would wash up on shore along with a years supply of Twizzlers and Coke. We’re both interested in authors we’ve been reading for years, as well as brand new authors. From single titles to category and from paranormal to historical when it comes to romance we love to read it all, and we love telling the stories that aren’t revealed on the pages of the books.
Reading is our passion, television is our career. We’ve combined the two and work together, as we have for the past 15 years, and we love what we do.
We’re not the only people here at Romance Novel TV. There are eight terrific woman who are also part of RNTV. Each one of us has a different opinion and a different point of view when it comes to romance books.
