Our Team

Managing the Real Men Romance Universe is far from a solo endeavor and Celia and Marina are lucky to have an outstanding team behind them as they bring more Real Men Romances to the shelves.

Celia Kyle // World Co-creator

Ex-dance teacher, former accountant and erstwhile collectible doll salesperson, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Celia Kyle now writes paranormal romances for readers who:

1) Like super hunky heroes (they generally get furry)

2) Dig beautiful women (who have a few more curves than the average lady)

3) Love laughing in (and out of) bed.

It goes without saying that there’s always a happily-ever-after for her characters, even if there are a few road bumps along the way. Today she lives in central Florida and writes full-time with the support of her loving husband and two finicky cats.

Marina Maddix // World Co-creator

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Marina Maddix is a romantic at heart, but hates closing the bedroom door on her readers. Her stories are sweet, with just enough spice to make your mother blush. She lives with her husband near the Pacific Ocean, and loves to hear from her fans.

Malena Carson // Administrative Anchor

Malena has been working as a virtual administrative assistant for the past four years, working with independent authors who need a helping hand behind the scenes. Before taking on this role she studied Classical Civilization and worked as a receptionist for the family business. In her off time, she creates traditional and digital art, plays video games, and still enjoys researching history. She lives in the foothills of East Tennessee with her precious furbaby, Fergus, a Siamese mix.

Kate Rudolph // Description Diva

Kate Rudolph loves writing about kick butt heroines and the steamy heroes who love them. She's been devouring romance novels since she was too young to be reading them and had to hide her books so no one would take them away. She couldn't imagine a better job in this world than writing romances and sharing them with her fellow readers.

Kate founded Better Book Blurbs in 2019 and has produced more than a hundred book blurbs and rewrites in a variety of genres including paranormal romance, contemporary romance, mystery, fantasy, and more.

Cissie Patterson // Content Coordinator

Cissie Patterson may seem as sweet as the historical western romances she writes, but she's really a little devil. As a voracious reader, her tastes range from chaste cowboys to steamy shifters and everything in between. She lives in Michigan with her two beautiful kids and a zoo's worth of cats and dogs.

Ana Martinez // Content Coordinator

Hi there I'm Ana,

It's a great pleasure and honor to be doing this for Celia & Marina. Marina was the first author I ever left a review for and I haven't stopped since 5 years later, what a great inspiration, she got me hooked! I love to help authors and aspiring ones in any way I can….I'm a Latin from Manhattan living in Florida… All the authors and readers are my family… I love em' all!
