I'm co-founder and chief executive of mayhem at Smart Bitches Trashy, one of the most prominent blogs examining romance fiction. The site specializes in reviewing romance novels, pondering the history and future of the genre in digital form and in print, and bemoaning the enormous prevalence of bodacious pectorals adorning male cover models.

I'm the author of the book Everything I Know About Love, I Learned from Romance Novels, published in 2011.

I'm co-author of the book, Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches’ Guide to Romance Novels, published in 2009. The Bosoms can be found on course syllabi at DePaul University, Yale University, Harvard University, Princeton University, and McDaniel College.

I can usually be found somewhere on the internet, either at SBTB, on Twitter, or gallivanting about on Facebook.

I love to celebrate the romance genre and the women who read and write it.
