About Y. M. Nelson
Author and Podcaster
Hi! I’m Y. M. Nelson 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 and realized there were no passionate verbs in company instruction manuals, I decided to produce and share my own work with the public.
So, I joined the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA), found some writing buddies, and created the Owen & Makayla romance story series. My debut romantic comedy The Accidental Swipe based on my #MyTinderSeries blog serial and was a finalist in Contemporary Romance Writers’ 2022 Stiletto Awards. When I’m not writing, I host the Nerdy Romantics Podcast which I created. I can also be found teaching college English, baking something sweet, upcycling random pieces of furniture, or watching reruns from one of the Star Trek franchises.
“When you give up, death is not far behind.”
