She only changed her tune when she discovered the Sweet Valley High series. The desire to explore the highs and lows of the characters, their conflicts, and their relationships, drove Showalter to ferociously devour the Sweet Valley High books.

She also remembers reading Johanna Lindsay’s ‘Silver Angel’ and falling for the heroine, a sassy 18-year-old that had the sexiest man in Regency England wrapped around her finger. The author was still in high school when she first attempted to write fiction.

Though, back then, she limited her efforts to a few scenes. It wasn’t until she reached her early twenties that Gena Showalter wrote ‘Heaven’s Fury’, her first full-length novel. But she has no interest in showing it to anyone because it was terrible. Showalter knows this, which is why she is frequently tempted to burn the manuscript.

Fortunately, she was not discouraged by the attempt. She kept writing until she found a publisher that was willing to take a chance on her stories. The author was 27. At the time, she had no idea that she would go on to write dozens of novels over the years, with some of the books becoming New York Times and USA Today bestsellers.

Showalter learned early on that she had to treat her career as a business. She couldn’t wait for inspiration to strike her. She had to make sure that she wrote every single day regardless of whether or not she felt like it.

Admittedly, once she became a published author, she no longer had a choice in the matter. She had deadlines and she understood that failing to meet them meant losing the trust of her publishers.

She uses the same discipline that got her into the publishing industry to meet her objectives. The author tries to write at least one chapter every single day regardless of the circumstances.

The fact that her work isn’t always pristine doesn’t bother Showalter. She knows that her first draft is just the bare bones and that, over time, she will fix and refine it to produce a manuscript worth publishing.

Showalter wants aspiring writers to approach their manuscripts the same way. They should write their first draft for themselves, acting as if no one will ever read it. This will enable them to make steady progress until they finally finish the draft.

The tactic has worked for Showalter. Her books are fascinating because she combines so many interesting ideas, including myths, legends, and folktales. But even when she experiments with fantasy, her books always emphasize the romantic aspects.

Gena Showalter Awards

Showalter won the South Carolina Children’s, Junior, and Young Adult Book Award (2014). She was a finalist for the Rita Award in 2009.

Best Gena Showalter Books

The author is an avid fan of Stephenie Meyer‘s Twilight novels. Showalter’s best books include:

The Darkest Night: For Ashlyn, Budapest was her only hope. She had spent her life trying and failing to escape the voices. Finally, she stumbled upon a solution that would bring her torment to an end. Rumors had revealed that a group of men in Budapest had supernatural abilities.

She made the trip hoping that one of them would help her. But Maddox wasn’t quite what Ashlyn expected. His touch had unleashed a hunger she could barely control. For his part, Maddox was just as helpless. He yearned for Ashlyn. But was their love enough to survive the test awaiting them?

The Darkest Kiss: Anya’s life was empty. Even with all her gifts, true pleasure had eluded the goddess of Anarchy. But then Lucien entered the picture and changed everything. As the incarnation of death, the warrior spent his days guiding the souls of the dead.

When the two collided, Anya realized that Lucien was the only person who could awaken the fire in her heart. But Lucien had been tasked with a heart-wrenching job. He had been sent to claim Anya. Anya and Lucien must sacrifice everything to protect their love.
