There, I will stake my last like a woman of spirit. No cold prudence for me. I am not born to sit still and do nothing. If I lose the game, it shall not be from not striving for it. —Jane Austen
Welcome to the Quill Ink, where I share all my upcoming editing and writing projects, book reviews, and other newsy bits. Since 2013, I have worked with over forty-five authors, edited numerous contemporary and historical romance, Austen-adjacent, and chick lit books, and curated five multi-author anthologies in "The Quill Collective" series under my own banner.
I finished writing my debut novel, Woman in the Painting, a dual-era romantic fiction with touches of magical realism—perfect for smart book clubs. Think: playful, sexy humor of The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren melded with the layered world-building of The Invisible Life of Addie La Rue by V.E. Schwab, maybe even vibing A.S. Byatt's Possession. I am querying agent representation. #ownvoices —Christina Boyd
