Colleen Kelly (she/her)
Contemporary, Rom Com, Historical, Fiction with strong romantic elements
I'm a writer and reader of historical romance from the Regency to the fin de siecle. I'm a former academic (Victorian lit), current writing and literature teacher, working on my second book for submission. I'm a former magazine editor and have reviewed romance of various genres for many years. I am rep'd by Tara Gelsomino of One Track Lit.
I write, read, live, and breathe historical romance. I know 19th century British/American history very well, but am open to all periods and eras. I love daring, prickly women; characters who make real mistakes; stories with stakes; and banter. Surprise me and make me feel. Angst is always welcome.
Supportive, encouraging, and honest. I prefer to schedule e-mail exchange and ocassional calls to discuss work.
