Elissa Strati

In 1981 I quit my job and announced to the world I was going to write a romance novel. I then spent the summer at the beach and the next year on the road visiting friends and relatives in some forty states and multiple Canadian provinces and Mexican estados. I chalk this—and the many intervening years before I finally actually published a book—all up to research.

In the meantime I’ve honed my editorial skills, gotten a history degree and learned a fair amount about antiques, running a business, and restoration of orphan buildings, the last several in conjunction with my wonderful spouse. And for us the adventure continues—with the occasional break for me to type madly into the computer whatever harebrained idea I may have come up with for a novel. (Fortunately, in most cases better judgment prevails and I don’t inflict it onto the world.)

"Love what you do. Be proud of your work. Care about your readers. Listen, learn, and focus on being the best author you can be. That's all it takes!"

Jasmine Bryner

From the time she picked up her first book at the age of three, Jasmine has always been a lover of words. Growing up, Jasmine used the words in books to discover new worlds and escape reality. As a student, she was a huge fan of English class and discovered her love of writing as well. Penning poems, short stories, and fan fiction became a hobby, and her love of words grew. Jasmine now uses her fascination with words and the skills she learned from many wonderful teachers to edit and proofread stories, helping authors make their books shine.

When she's not working, reading, or spending time with her kids, Jasmine enjoys geeking out over nerdy shows like Doctor Who and Game of Thrones, listening to music from the 50s-80s, playing board games with friends, and posting silly quiz results online.
