In January 2018 I joined the Carina Press team as a freelance acquisitions editor. Carina Press is Harlequin’s digital-first adult fiction single-title imprint, which publishes all subgenres of romance, including contemporary, erotic, science fiction, fantasy and more. I’m excited to work with a publisher that’s willing to mix it up. If the book of your heart fits into a niche that has little shelf space in a traditional bookstore, Carina Press is eager to take a look.

I’m especially interested in contemporary, erotic and historical, as well as paranormal, sci-fi and fantasy romances that hook me with traditional tropes. Do you have a fresh take on a classic?
