About the author
Even though Gabbi Black is a firm believer in happy endings, she makes her characters work for it in every romance she writes, no matter what the genre. From contemporary to BDSM, they are penned early in the morning in her home in beautiful British Columbia while her trusty ChinPoo dog keeps her company. She also writes gay romances as Gabbi Grey.
I wrote the In Their Eyes trilogy almost ten years ago. I wanted to explore the dynamics of relationships within power exchanges. What I discovered was a trove of damaged souls whose stories clamored to be told. I started with one image – a woman alone in a nightclub. The questions followed – who is she? Why is she alone? Is she pining? For who? What about the hero? What’s his story? Why will he be able to reach her when no one else has been able to? From that one flash, I fleshed out three novels and a quarter of a million words. I wrote the trilogy in just three months. I loved the stories, but I wasn’t sure what to do with them. I was writing other books at the time and didn’t know what I could do with this dark trilogy. The romances had happy endings, to be sure, but the stories involved deep emotional wounds and dark subjects.
In the end, I found a freelance editor who worked with me to refine the stories. My writing was raw and unpolished. That woman assured me the books provided an emotional impact and suggested I submit them to The Wild Rose Press. The first book, Amber Eyes, landed on the desk of an amazing editor who saw the potential for a moving story. She worked with me and eventually we had a book we were happy with. I published it two years ago. Last year, we did the middle book of the trilogy. Different couple, but the similar deep wounds. Next month, the final book is being released.
I’m grateful to this wonderful editor for having taken a chance on me – and for giving this trilogy a home.
Thank you, D.V., for letting me come and share my story with you and your readers.
R! This is as steamy as it can get! And, to share a quick little insider information – I’ve written another book under this pen name set in Buenos Aires that is coming out next year.
