Take a bookworm. Hand her a stack of scifi and fantasy novels, thrillers and horror comics. Then introduce world of romance fiction. Make her a jinx. Every great genre TV show she loves gets the ax! She gets upset about no romance in the world, writes her own stories with happy endings. Throw this all together, shake constantly, and pour onto a computer keyboard. There. You have me!
