Meet Becca Layne.
You might already know me as Paloma Beck. I've been writing erotic romance since 2012. But now I'm publishing new adult romance under a new pen name... Becca Layne. Actually, this is closer to my “real” name, Rebecca.
I’m excited to introduce some younger characters to readers. With a masters degree in higher education administration, I get to use my in-depth study of college-aged students in my writing. Life between ages 18-24 are the next biggest time of growth aside from the preschool years, and I can't wait to explore some characters as they discover who they are while finding love for the first time.
The first book -Ivy Intertwined- in my Island Refuge series is scheduled to be released in February 2016. In the meantime, I’m writing a weekly FREE web serial -Ring Around Rosie- that will appear on my tumblr blog, on Wattpad and JukePop. The fun part of writing a web serial is that reader comments help shape each new episode (chapter). It's more interactive than writing a traditional book in the isolation of my office. Rather than waiting until its complete, I share the story weekly.
Ring Around Rosie will introduce some of the characters in the Island Refuge series.
Born and bred to become the perfect princess in the Chicago socialite scene, Rosemary’s dream of becoming an artist was cast aside by her demanding family. Until the day when Rosemary had enough. With her trust fund and a car full of belongings, she left her family behind and drove east -as far east as possible- until she found the perfect island to open her jewelry shop. It was also the perfect place to find her own path.
Everything was going along smoothly… and, just maybe, a little lonely… until she meets Erik Thorne.
Raised in his father’s brewery -and always knowing he would inherit the business someday- Erik had it all too easy. Then his reputation as the party boy who refused to grow up eventually caught up with him. Now he owes everything to his brother who was willing to move away and start over somewhere new.
Everything was going along smoothly… and, just maybe, a little boring… until he meets Rosie.
