I’m Shayne (she/her) and I write erotic romance intertwined with the woman’s journey. My stories always include hot sex, witty banter, and a killer playlist. I entangle my heroines in compelling love triangles—the kind where both her choices are strong contenders. My female leads are Black/biracial and the romance is interracial because it’s what I longed to see on the page when I was growing up. While I embrace the angst that often comes from dealing with dark subject matter, I handle it with humor and heart. Much like my approach to life.
I was a finalist in the Erotic/BDSM Unpublished category of the Contemporary Romance Writers 2019 Stiletto contest and winner of the 2018 Best Banter Contest, Contemporary Romance Unpublished Category. I was chosen as one of the mentees in RWA’s inaugural Romance Author Mentorship Program (RAMP) for unpublished authors.
I’m a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), my local chapter Land of Enchantment Romance Authors (LERA), and Passionate Ink.
When I’m not pacing the floor working on a plot point or doing a fist pump when a scene goes right, I’m gazing out the window at the backyard birds or dancing to YouTube videos in my living room.
