Danica Winters

Bio: Danica Winters is a Nielsen BookScan and an Amazon bestselling author who has won multiple awards for writing books that grip readers with their ability to drive emotion through suspense and occasionally a touch of magic.

She is also the co-owner of Self-Publishing Services, a women-owned and run business. SPS is a company that she loves, as she feels that she gets to help other authors grow creatively and enhance their discoverability in the ever-changing publishing market. SPS has worked with many NYT and USA Bestselling authors and they are constantly growing.

When she’s not working, she can be found in the wilds of Montana testing her patience while she tries to understand the allure of various crafts (quilting, pottery, and painting are not her thing).  She always believes the cup is neither half full nor half empty, but it better be filled with wine.

Karen Reid

Bio: Karen Reid is an Associate Editor with Harlequin Superromance. Karen began her career at Harlequin in 1999 as a proofreader and joined the editorial team in 2001 working as an editorial assistant with Superromance. Since then she's worked with the Feature & Custom Publishing group, as well as on the Worldwide Library mystery and suspense programs, and the Gold Eagle action/adventure line. Rejoining the Superromance team in 2012 brought Karen full circle, and she's been enjoying every minute of it! When not looking for the next great romance author or fine-tuning a happy ending, Karen enjoys hanging out with her two boys, watching way too much TV and keeping up with the latest celebrity gossip (her guilty pleasure).

Discussion on Craft

Program Description: challenges of writing sex scenes, the road to getting to contract, and representing the male and female voice in romance fiction.
