About Us

We’re three book nerds with a particular affinity for the romance genre. We’re not saying we are monogamous to romance, but we are saying romance fills a special place in our hearts. We love romance novels almost as much as we love cats. Cats always win though, there’s just no getting around that.   

Our nerdy trio enjoys romance novels that feature smart, resilient leading characters. We are pro-consent. We would even go as far as saying that consent is sexy! We like reading books that reflect the vast diversity of the human love experience. It’s time to be shameless in your love of the romance genre and find other romance nerds just like you. Join us and find your own happy ending.

Meet our Team:

Kayleigh Platz is a lifetime writer and avid reader who is passionate about library advocacy. Growing up and working in the Waterloo Region technology and academic sectors, she likes to examine the ways our complex world impacts everyday life. She holds a master’s degree in anthropology, and has defined her career around digital cultures, community building and brand storytelling. While she’ll read any romance she can get her hands on, Kayleigh especially loves to read YA, rom coms and historical romances especially if there’s an enemy to lovers or mistaken identity trope in it. Kayleigh’s favourite reading partner is her cat, Ellie, because she never interrupts Kayleigh when she’s engrossed in a book.

Veronica Wilson (Ronny Wilson) has always loved surrounding herself with books. As a kid, she never had to worry about monsters under her bed because there was never any space for them because of all the books she had under there (and she still does). When her nose isn’t buried in a book, Veronica is busy working in her garden, planning her next trip, or trying to burn off those cookies she ate, by working out at the gym. She loves visiting small independent bookstores all over the world and has a weakness for buying multiple copies of the same book just because it has a different cover. She also has a loud and clingy cat named Minnie, who loves being the center of attention and has made it her mission to be in every single book picture on this blog. But there is nothing Veronica loves more than sitting in her reading chair with a warm cuppa coffee, a good book, and Minnie on her lap. 

Gabrielle Clermont used to be an extrovert until a global pandemic helped her find her true introvert qualities. You can find her quietly sewing by hand, nose deep in a book, or walking in the woods when she is not busy working at the library or volunteering in her community. Her general outlook is that life is a series of challenges getting in the way of her reading. She’s a life-long bibliophile who tends to become emotionally attached to books. She likes her books light but not without substance and she enjoys reading about relationships between all gender identities. She is not a cat mom but hopes to be one when she grows up.
