Hello World


I'm Ivy. I've been ghostwriting for a while and also working away submitting stories under other pen names to romance and other presses (no bites there as of yet). Soon, I'll be working with my girlfriend and other cowriters to bring paranormal romance and urban fantasy novellas primarily featuring queer women leads into the Kindle Unlimited world and self publishing this summer.

We talked about everything from my start in ghostwriting (and how others can also) to fanfiction to diversity in romance fiction and in genre entertainment. That interview should be out soon, and I'll link here when it is.

Anyway, I hope you stick around and enjoy everything. I'll be teasing more about my books as I go.

The first official post will be up on Wednesday with a little bit about writing groups and my experience in one.

An excellent question! I feel I haven't really updated in a year, and there's a lot of reasons for that. While I've written an...
