While I've been writing fantasy and chick lit since 1999, I only started writing romance in 2016. I've self-published three light-hearted paranormal erotic romances and am currently working on a spicy contemporary romance series. I plan on continuing to self-publish my paranormal universe books while seeking representation for my contemporary work. When it comes to critiquing, I would like to find contemporary partners who can offer feedback fairly quickly. For those reading my paranormal work, time is less sensitive. If you are only interested in critiquing my contemporary, or only interested in my paranormal, do let me know so I will only contact you when I have a project you will enjoy. I am also interested in critiquing Regency romances, and might be interested in other historical periods set in Europe, Asia or Africa. I do not write currently write historical, so you would have to be willing to read my paranormal or contemporary novels.  Clearly as an erotic writer I am okay with any spice level in your work. When it's my turn to critique I will make sure that I get back to you in a timely manner. I prefer if you send a pdf so I can make comments as I go if I notice typos or awkward phrasing. I am okay with critiquing a chapter, a partial, or a full manuscript.  I will generally be looking for someone to read a full manuscript.
