Romance and Romantic Fiction Writer, Podcaster, Nerdy Romantic
I’m Y. M. Nelson (she/her), and I’m based in Charlotte, NC. I write about love, women’s journeys, and amateur DIY. After I spent most of my writing “career” ghostwriting for companies, I realized there were no passionate verbs in company instruction manuals. So, I decided to produce and share my own work with the public.
So, I joined the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA). Then I wrote the Owen & Makayla romance story series, which has been downloaded over 900 times. My debut romantic comedy The Accidental Swipe based on my #MyTinderSeries blog serial is a finalist in Contemporary Romance Writers’ Stiletto Awards.
In between bouts of writing, I create and host the Nerdy Romantics Podcast. To support this writing “habit,” I’m an English professor and have a day job.
