Meet Your Host
Y. M. Nelson
I’m Y. M. Nelson (she/her), based in Charlotte, NC, and I write about love, women’s journeys, and amateur DIY. After I spent most of my writing “career” ghostwriting for companies and realized there were no passionate verbs in company instruction manuals, I decided to produce and share my own work with the public.
So I joined the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA), and I wrote the Owen & Makayla romance story series, which has been downloaded over 800 times. Now I’m working on several novels, and my debut romantic comedy The Accidental Swipe based on my #MyTinderSeries blog serial is almost complete. In between bouts of writing, I create and host the Nerdy Romantics Podcast. To support this writing “habit,” I’m an English professor and have a day job.
