Brenda Chin, Editor

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.

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.

Jen Bouvier, Acquisitions Manager and Editor
Jen Bouvier got their start in publishing on the agenting side and worked as a social media strategist and freelance editor for NYT-bestselling and USA-Today-bestselling authors before joining Entangled.

They are considering submissions across all genres, with a soft spot for speculative YA, funny women's fiction, and queer historical romance.
