Welcome to Musings from a Curvy Romance Writer!
I am a curvy girl. I say curvy because that’s the “pretty” term for it. However, let’s just call it what it is, Fat!
I’m fat and I’m OK with that. (Fat is only a bad word if you treat it like one.)
You’re probably thinking, “You don’t look very “fat” in your picture.”
That’s because I take great selfies! Honestly, I do. Great selfies is really an art form, don’t you think? 😉
Anyway, I’m a real woman with real curves and real issues to boot.
I have a husband with whom I’ve had by my side for 18 years. Click on “Summer Fun and Then Some…” to learn more about our love story. I have two kids ages 17 and 14 and if your thinking,” You look too young to have been with someone that long and have kids that age!” you would be right. I am. I’m 36.
I started my life a wee bit earlier than most. Some would ask, “If I had to do it over again would I have still started at such a young age?” and my answer is and will always be a resounding “Yes!.”
I’ve always felt like I had a limited time on Earth and I’ve lived my life accordingly.
I’m currently a “Stay At Home Mom” but have been a Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA), a Certified Geriatric Assistant (CGA), a hospital lab associate, a Chiropractic Receptionist, a jewelry sales clerk, a cafeteria worker, a deli worker, a nanny and a Thirty-One consultant.
I’m an extremely friendly person who loves to socialize on Social Media. Which is hilarious because, in real life, I actually struggle with my desire to stay an introvert. “Hi my name is Darla and I’m socially awkward!” So, with that said, come find me on:
I’d love to chat and get to know you.
About my Writing:
I write like I talk; honestly, with a touch of snark, and nothing held back.
I am currently working on writing Contemporary Curvy Romances that can be found in the Romantic Suspense, New Adult and Contemporary Romance Categories.
Each of my books will feature plus size heroines and the heroes that love them. So, if you’re tired of skinny heroines who are worshiped and can eat anything they want without putting on weight, then my books are for you.
I strive to write real plus size women in fun, sexy, and intense situations. There will always be hot, well hung males “panting” after them and an annoyingly funny best friend to keep them real.
Check out “Hello Writing World!” to learn why I chose to embark on this adventure called romance writing.
I have a published poem titled “Love?” back in 1994. Click “From The Heart of a Child” to learn more about it.
About This Website:
In this website you will find:
- A blog that is updated at least 3 times a week with articles about writing, romance, and life.
- A place where you can read about my current WIP’s (Work in Progresses), news about my books being published and insider info on the characters that inhabit them.
- A space to talk about writing, reading, and all things plus size.
Are you thinking about engaging with me and my other followers on here? Then remember my #1 Rule:
Rule #1: Be yourself, don’t be shy!
So I guess, technically, that’s two rules but you get what I mean.
I didn’t create this website to listen to myself “talk”. I’ve created it to share:
- What I have learned and what I know about writing, publishing and book marketing.
- My love of books and reading
- My writing
- My lifelong mission of body acceptance and self-love.
- To interact with people who love to read and who love to write.

All advice, comments and criticism is welcome.
