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.

My diehard tribe hangs out on my Nerdy Romantics Facebook Group.

  1. Good evening. I found your profile on linkedin and decided to follow you as we shared much in common. I also work as an English Adjunct and write a blog Cupcakecache which was part of our business plan until we closed in December due to my husband’s illness. I am also trying to get more published and write daily. Best of luck to both of us! Looking forward to following your blog.
