    I am the ghost writer of 3 erotic romance series. I have written a number of romance subgenres, including gay, paranormal, fan fiction, and fantasy. I began my writing career as a content writer but have increasingly found regular work as a romantic fiction writer. However, I like to keep my skills sharp by writing engaging articles and blog posts. The qualities that have made me a successful content writer also make me a quality short novelist. Namely: *strict adherence to deadlines *willingness to do rewrites and edits *clear and effective communication skills *a fun and engaging writing style *character driven plots
