When I took over RNIC a few weeks back, I knew immediately that I would need to bring on some additional help. A few team members were ready to move on to and tackle other challenges, and I needed to figure out how best to manage this site without losing my mind 🙂
With M.J. Kane transitioning out as our Newsletter Editor, I knew I would have to find her replacement as soon as possible. M.J. has been an invaluable member of RNIC from the beginning, and I knew finding someone to fill her shoes wouldn’t be easy. Thankfully, several people reached out to me and I think I’ve found a perfect fit.
Chris Cornelia has volunteered her time and efforts to RNIC in the past and she will now be our new Newsletter Editor. You can learn more about Chris on our “About Us” page”. For now please join me in welcoming her to the site.
Chris isn’t the only new member of the RNIC team. I’ve been lucky in the sense that so many wonderful people stepped forward and volunteered their help and advice. After some some deliberation, I realized that it was time to bring on some Resident Reviewers. These reviewers would be my side-kicks in arms when it came to reviewing, and join the great pool of RNIC reviewers that have helped RNIC becoming such a great reviewing blog. With that being said, Natalie and Petra, two voracious readers with big personalities have also joined the RNIC team.
Please join me in welcoming these great ladies to RNIC.
RNIC Newsletter Editor
Chris Cornelia is a long time lover of all things romance and story telling. She grew up on Dynasty, Young and the Restless, and Bold and the Beautiful while visiting her grandmother during the summers in South Prince George, Virginia. Her favorite authors growing up were Harriet Jacobs, Jane Austen, Zora Neal Hurston, Joan Collins and Sidney Sheldon. Chris is currently enjoying life in Bel Air, Maryland after serving several years in the military. Her hobbies include writing novellas, reading romance, jazz music, and bee keeping.
Natalie is an avid reader of all genres but finds herself most attracted to tales with an offbeat synopsis. She can often be found immersed in books penned by a variety of authors; however she tends to love diverse stories that include LGBTIQAP and IR/MC characters as protagonists.
Petra loves cooking, long walks on the beach and…Just kidding… A former litigation paralegal for one of the top law firms in the country coupled with her Caribbean Italian heritage has given her a cosmopolitan view of the world complimented by a sarcastic sense of humor and perspective. An avid reader, writer and fitness junkie with a love of reading interracial romance and paranormal novels, when not trolling the social media pages she an be found on the stage belly-dancing or performing Burlesque.
Laurel Cremant is an opinionated author and reader of romance with a wicked sense of humor. RNIC was smart (or crazy) to bring her on as a blogger. In 2016 she took over the management of this site and relishes her new title of “Overlord of Awesome”
