> ANA COQUI (she/her) A lifelong genre reader, Ana grew up reading fantasy, sci-fi & mystery novels in Puerto Rico, before finally wandering into the romance section of the library in search of HEA’s after bawling through one too many dystopian novels. When she is not reading, knitting, writing about romance for Love in Panels or running #RomBkLove on Twitter as @anacoqui, Ana is a school librarian

BONUS EP GUEST

> THIEN-KIM LAM (she/her) Thien-Kim writes erotic multiracial romances exploding with delectable delights. When she needs a break from imagining new places for her heroine to hide her battery operated toys, she guzzles Vietnamese iced coffee and bakes her feelings.
