2022 * I was thrilled to be a part of a fund-raising effort by a group of hard working romance authors spearheaded by authors Brooke Cumberland, Lyra Parish, Nicole French, and Brighton Walsh. Authors, editors, marketing folks, cover artists, and readers came together to support #reproductive rights in a USA Today Bestselling anthology “DISSENT”. Efforts raised over six figures to support reproductive rights. I’m proud that my work “Dearest Part-time Princess: A Modern Fairytale Novella” was part of this effort.
