Ali Williams oscillates between working as a romance editor, academic and writer, all of which satisfies her inner romance reader.
Her doctoral research focuses on the reading and writing the romance as feminist, including it within an oeuvre of ecriture feminine, and works in dialogue with the writing of a contemporary category romance novel.
She is also working on a five book paranormal romance series set on the South Downs, featuring angry ancient gods, stubborn romance heroines and the Wild Hunt. And The Hound.
She writes as an editor with The Pink Heart Society (a monthly webzine focusing on the romance publishing industry), and also works as a freelance romance novel editor, specialising in contemporary and paranormal romance and romantic suspense.
Ali is a member of the International Association for the Study of Popular Romance (IASPR) and the Romantic Novelists' Association (RNA).
