Tucson author's love of romance novels inspired her to write her own

Sarah T. Dubb is the author of “Birding with Benefits.”

Here’s a combination you might not have expected — a steamy romance novel about birding.

It might be offbeat, but it’s the perfect marriage for first-time Tucson author Sarah T. Dubb. Her debut romance novel hit the shelves in June, and it’s called "Birding With Benefits."

It tells the story of a recently divorced 40-something mom who meets a shy bird watcher and, well, romance ensues.

Dubb told The Show she didn’t grow up dreaming of seeing her book on a bookshelf, but that all changed when she fell in love with romance novels.
