Happy St Patrick’s Day!
I’m a tad Irish, my Grandmother’s maiden name is O’Brien after all!
I don’t look forward to this holiday because of my slightly Irish blood though. What I do like about it is the sense of tradition.
- Green beer
- Green rivers
- Corned beef and cabbage
- Wearing green clothing
- Shamrocks (I loved shamrock shakes at McDonald’s as a kid!
- And pots of gold at the end of the rainbow
It’s a holiday spent celebrating with friends and family and what’s better than that?!
As you spend some time writing your romance novel today, remember to think about characterization. How would your heroine celebrate this holiday? Would she? What about your hero? What traditions would they embrace?
And if you’re looking for a good Irish Romance Story consider:

- Irish Fire (2000) by Jeanette Baker
- Born in Fire (1994) by Nora Roberts

Happy Writing and have a safe and fun holiday!
