A lesson for romance writers, courtesy of Elmore Leonard

Elmore Leonard isn’t a romance writer, of course. But the adaptation of his novel Out of Sight gives us one of the best romances I’ve ever seen in film (or read in a book.) The Steven Soderbergh film creates such tension between the hero and heroine (played by Georgia Clooney and Jennifer Lopez)  that it’s like a blueprint for anyone interested in romance writing.  If you don’t believe me, read this EW piece.
