Her mission statement was simple: offer authors the highest royalties in the industry, combined with an agile publishing program, intense focus on quality, and market-driven analysis, in an effort to bridge the gap between traditional and self-publishing opportunities. Over the past five years, Entangled has gone from a small start-up to a powerhouse romance publisher, with more than 1200 titles released to date. Liz lives in Colorado, is supporting her twins through college, and has an unwavering love of Game of Thrones.

After earning a degree in Business Studies in 2011, eventually her love of the written word led her to Entangled in 2012.

Editing Team

Heather Howland, Packaging Director for Teen
After years of editing in the legal, industrial, and technical sectors, Heather Howland packed up her desk and dove into her true passion: romance. With Entangled, she’s helped launch the careers of many NYT and USA TODAY bestsellers, hitting both lists several times over. She holds a BS in creative writing and psychology and channels that knowledge into her love of dark, twisty, sexy romantic fiction. Married to her very own romance hero (a firefighter, rawr!), Heather’s now outnumbered by her pack of Howland males, and their dogs Oden and Finnick. Find her on Twitter at @HeatherHowland.

Alycia Tornetta, Editorial Director of Bliss, Brazen, Indulgence, Lovestruck, and Scandalous
Alycia Tornetta works with popular authors such as NYT bestseller Lauren Blakely, USA Today bestsellers Karen Erickson and Cindi Madsen, and bestselling authors Rachel Harris, Hope Tarr, and many more. Alycia loves quirky, independent heroines and smart, sexy heroes. She also has a weakness for cute, nerdy guys with great hair and bad boys with even better hair. Alycia currently lives in a small town where, in the land of trucks, her Mini Cooper is the smallest car around. You can follow her on Twitter at @weechagirl. Alycia loves all kinds of books, especially ones that combine genres in a unique and clever way. For YA, she’s a huge fan of contemporary, sci-fi, mysteries, and thrillers. If it’s fast-paced and makes her heart race, she wants to read it. Light contemporary romances that make her swoon are great, too. For adult, she loves fun voices, strong tropes, and lots of sexual tension. She’d kill for more LGBT stories for YA, NA, and adult romance.

Brenda Chin, Editor
Award-winning editor Brenda Chin has been involved in the romance industry for more than 28 years. Throughout her many years with Harlequin, she worked with some of the best writers in the business, including such notables as Brenda Jackson, Jill Shalvis, Vicki Lewis Thompson and Betina Krahn. During those years, Brenda also bought 74 new authors–Carly Phillips, Stephanie Bond, Julie Kenner and Leslie Kelly, to name but a few. Many of the authors introduced to Harlequin have gone on to hit the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists. Brenda is always up for adventure. Whether it’s kayaking all over North America (beautiful Haida Gwaii is her favorite place on earth), or horseback riding in the Rockies, Brenda loves pushing the boundaries. And that’s exactly what she’ hoping to do in her new role as the Editorial Director of the Brazen and new, exciting Scorched series.   With the changing nature and unlimited possibilities in today’s market, Brenda can hardly wait!

Alethea Spiridon, Editor
Alethea Spiridon was an editor for Harlequin Books in Toronto for almost seven years, working with writers such as Bobby Hutchinson, Roberta Gellis, Lori Foster, Cathy Yardley, Lori Wilde, Jill Shalvis, Anne Stuart, and Pamela Morsi to name a few. She worked on anthologies, continuities, special projects, and some series. She enjoys a fresh, fun, flirty voice, and anything that can make her laugh and see the lighter side of life. That being said, she’s also drawn to contemporary alpha male stories and lush historical romances. Jane Porter, Sherryl Woods, Rachel Gibson, Carole Matthews, Julie James, Sheila O’Flanagan, and Sarah Mayberry are some authors she enjoys reading. Before joining Entangled, Alethea was a freelance editor and writer, and has edited everything from historical to paranormal romance, non-fiction titles, plays, and even some poetry. Find her on Twitter at @aletheaspiridon.

Erin Molta, Editor
Erin Molta has been working in publishing for more than two decades. Editing novelty books, children’s books, YA, and now focuses on historical romance. She loves epic Viking romance, stories set in the Scottish Highlands, with the rugged chieftains holding their own against the hardy Scottish lasses hell-bent on stealing their hearts, medieval lords and ladies in the Great Halls of Scotland and England, and of course, Regency, where it’s all about le bon ton and where one’s worth is dictated by one’s title—unless it’s not. Sassy heroines, alpha-male heroes (with tender hearts), and witty banter are a plus because those qualities are timeless.

Marie Loggia-Kee, Editor
Marie Loggia-Kee’s work can be found in more than 150 magazines and seven anthologies. She has a strong background in journalism, a master’s degree in communications, and a master’s degree in English. In addition to publishing romantic fiction under a penname, she edits and writes for a variety of venues, and teaches college classes in journalism, English, film studies and popular culture. Marie would like to see contemporary, sensual small-town settings, along the lines of Robyn Carr’s Virgin River or Susan Mallery’s Fool’s Gold. She would also like to see submissions with culture and sass similar to Alisa Valdes-Rodriquez and Mary Castillo. Within the paranormal realm, Marie is craving a strong female protagonist who’s fighting the bad guys rather than simply jumping into bed with one of them, who has a love interest that’s not the vampire she’s supposedly hunting. She’s open to F/M, F/F, and M/M pairings in all heat levels, though erotic elements must be secondary to the plot.

Nina Bruhns, Editor New York Times and USA Today Best Selling author Nina Bruhns has published nearly 40 award-winning romance and thriller novels, and has studied screenwriting with a host of Hollywood writers and directors, as well as privately with such screenwriting stars as Blake Snyder, Michael Hauge, and David Freeman. As a result, Nina brings unique insight and expertise to her work as a senior editor for Entangled. For submissions, Nina is especially open to short, hot stories for Scorched, Brazen, Scandalous, and Ignite, but will consider other lines. Mainly, she looks for stellar writing, awesome characters, and a compelling story.

Lydia Sharp, Editor & Acquisitions Manager
Lydia Sharp is a YA novelist, short fiction author, and former blogger. Before joining Entangled, they were a regular contributor to various publishing industry sites, including the award-winning Writer Unboxed. Lydia’s favorite stories have a brisk pace, crackling chemistry, witty banter, romantic moments that make you melt, a high stakes plot, characters that jump off the page, and a dramatic ending. They are especially interested in stories that feature characters across the spectrum of gender identity and sexual orientation. Follow on Twitter @Lydia_sharp for regular updates on their manuscript wish list. Lydia is actively seeking young adult projects in the following genres: contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, and fairytale retellings or re-imaginings in any genre. They are selectively considering new adult (contemporary or sci-fi only); adult contemporary romance; adult historical romance; and womens fiction with a strong romantic element.

Robin Haseltine, Editor
Although Robin Haseltine has had several incarnations—everything from money market broker, to teacher, to AOL screen programmer—one of the highlights of her life was when Liz Pelletier offered her an internship shortly after Entangled Publishing opened their doors in 2011. Since that time, Robin has had the opportunity to team with Liz on RITA nominees (Historical and Contemporary) and NY Times Bestsellers (YA and Contemporary). She works with amazing authors across every Entangled imprint and has seen many reach the top of Amazon and Nook charts, receive rave reviews on Kirkus, Romantic Times, and Fresh Fiction, and hit the USA Today Bestseller list. A true squee-worthy moment came when two of her authors received Galaxy Awards (SF), one of whom was also nominated for the prestigious Ditmar Award. Aside from cuddling the grandkids and hanging with the parrots, there’s little she loves more than seeing an author hold their book in their hands. And, yes, she’s been known to cry when telling a debut author Entangled is acquiring their book..

Tracy Montoya, Editor
Tracy Montoya is the award-winning author of several romantic suspense novels for both Harlequin and Kensington. She’s given acclaimed hour-long, day-long, and week-long workshops across the country on finding “a method for plotting madness”; using “deep point of view” to create characters that pop off the page; and more. Tracy is also a longtime magazine editor and writer who has written hundreds of articles for national publications. Tracy is seeking category-length romantic fiction of all kinds—anything from sweet to sexy, as long as it’s character-driven, emotional, and fast-paced. Her personal favorites usually have a strong conflict and an exceptionally strong heroine—think Buffy Summers (with or without the slayer powers) not Bella Swan. That said, anything goes as long as it contributes to her insomnia problem and keeps her reading through the night. She’d love to hear from more authors of color.

Wendy Chen, Editor
Wendy Chen first started editing romances at a large NYC publishing house in the late 1990’s. She then got her MBA in Marketing and Finance from New York University, and has been working on the business side of a major newspaper. While writing her own novels, she found she missed the world of editing and is thrilled to be with Entangled. While she is still a New Yorker at heart, she now lives in Northern Virginia. She loves contemporaries and historicals, with strong and sassy heroines, and smart and sexy heroes. Favorite tropes include Relationships of Convenience, Friends to Lovers, Enemies to Lovers, Second Chance at Love, but she’ll fall for anything with a great voice that makes her laugh and cry. Find her on Twitter @wendychenbooks.
