Rochelle Karina (she/her)

I’m Rochelle—California native living in Maryland. I write kissing books (the contemporary kind) and thrillers. I read just about everything but have a soft spot for horror. Foodie and cook. Quietly queer. Loudly proud mom to three LGBTQ+ adult kids and anyone else who needs a mom.

Rochelle has 20+ years as a magazine & newspaper editor and 10+ years freelance fiction editor. She was
a 2018 Pitch Wars mentee and a 2020 & 2021 mentor. She has three books published with small presses and her agent is Jana Hanson.

“I want to help others on their journey into publishing as a way of paying forward all the support I received along the way. I hope my experiences with querying agents and publishers, and working with a publisher can help other writers with their work.”
