The romanticization of inclusive, accessible, and healthy relationships
Hi, I'm Cheryl!
I'm that person who always said I didn't like romance novels. What I actually meant was I had a hard time finding the kind of romance novels I related to.
I wanted to see flawed characters in pursuit of healthy and happy relationships. I wanted sexy scenes that were funny and steamy. I wanted comedy, tears, and to feel like I knew the people in the book.
I like to subvert expectations, mash genres, and write smut with a meaning. I aim to write stories that appeal to anyone who loves a good love story and believe romance is for anyone who wants it.
What People Are Saying
I love this! it's really hot, but also kind of heartwarming? I love how you describe Bretta, honestly it's got me kind of emotional because I'm not used to having characters I relate to so strongly being objects of desire.
You know that wish thing about having a meal with live or dead people? Forever my list consisted of Bill Watterson; Stephan Pastis and Gary Larson. I want you there as well. Witty, snarky, funny and endearing, these Nellie stories are a great read.
A VERY NELLIE CHRISTMAS
This was such a good story that I skipped over the sexy scenes so that I could read what happens next. Also, you should get a book deal. Thanks for addressing real life issues and writing healthy relationships.
