A Dell Diamond Debut finalist and a Daphne du Maurier finalist, Dallis writes primarily romantic mysteries and suspense. Here is more from her own perspective:
Yes, I write romances. Or I write mysteries with romantic elements. Some of my books have paranormal and magical elements. Other books (like Cryptic Cove Mysteries and Sweeten the Swindler) hint at magic, although my main characters don't really believe in magic ... although that might change! All of my books have quirky characters and there is usually some level of danger-whether it's suspense or mystery. Whether I write historical romances or historical mysteries with romantic elements, with or without magic/paranormal, there will always be quirky characters colliding with some kind of danger.
I started out writing Regency Paranormal Romances, which I still love to write. Recently I have delved into Sweet Historical Western Romances. My books are connected, either through my characters (such as relatives or friends who know my characters in other books) or through Cojocaru's Traveling Carneytown. I hadn't planned on writing the series of Cryptic Cove Mysteries until I received feedback from several readers wanting more after reading Uma's Umbrage. I put another project aside to plot another series of books that are a spinoff of Uma's Umbrage.
