• Kat Mayo is a freelance writer, podcaster, Twitter tragic, and compulsive reader. Her reviews have appeared in Books+Publishing, and she was the winner of the 2014 RWA Romance Media Award. She believes in happy endings, and kills fairies with glee.

  • Decadence’s fascination with vampires can be blamed on Anne Rice and although she reads urban fantasy, historical romance, romantica and crime, her first and undying love is paranormal romance. She works in a bookstore and gets no sympathy for the sheer volume of work she brings home, not to mention the TBR mountain that will never be surmounted. Her guilty pleasures include (in no particular order) chocolate, pizza, sleeping in and Alexander Skarsgard and she is a final assessment away from holding a full pistol licence.

  • Wandergurl is a sometime traveller who spends her daylight hours making sure that things go the way they’re supposed to with minimum bureaucracy (don’t ask!). A firm believer that thirty is the new twenty, she will probably never look her age (or act it!). An enthusiastic football supporter (that would be soccer to you) she will get up at odd hours to watch a game, and of course it’s not just because the players are hot. She loves history, geography and is pretty good at trivia, thanks to her propensity to remember random bits of celebrity gossip. When not reading or travelling, she can be found indulging in her other passion — eating — and can be found at Wake up and smell the coffee.

  • I am a Melbourne-based graphic designer and illustrator and expert procrastinator. I crusade for kitsch and bad taste, while bad puns are my speciality. I am most often seen on Twitter usually talking books, Batman, Asianisms, comics, and art/design.

  • Camille is bibliophile with a penchant for angst, masochism & mermaids (not necessarily in that order or even altogether but hey, Joey W Hill certainly does a brilliant job of it)

  • Twenty-three-year old postgrad student who has now read too much erotica to know what’s appropriate to say in every-day conversations. Likes: romance, food, musicals. Dislikes: sad endings, loud chewing, spoilers.

  • Jodi is a literary historian currently working as a lecturer at the University of Tasmania. Her research focuses on the history of love, sex, women, and popular culture, so reading romance novels is technically work for her. Shed a tear for Jodi.

    Jodi is also an author, and her debut YA paranormal novel Valentine is due out in February 2017. One time, she was invited on a special private tour of the set of The Bold and the Beautiful, and it was the single best hour of her life.
