Virtual - Monster Romance Panel with Ashley Bennett, Kate Prior, and Colette Rhodes

Thursday, March 14, 2024

We just love our Monster Romance Panels! This time, we welcome authors Ashley Bennett, Kate Prior, and Colette Rhodes as they talk about how is it different/same from PNR/Alien romances, their publishing journeys, and experience with Romancelandia. This is sure to be an amazing conversation!

RECORDING NOTE: This program will be recorded. All registrants will receive the recording via email within 48 hours of the program.


Ashley Bennett

Ashley is an avid reader and the co-host of The Smut and Spice Podcast. During the Covid-19 pandemic, she decided to dip her toes into writing and hasn’t looked back. She lives in Maryland with her husband, daughter, five dogs, and three cats. When she isn’t immersed in all things books, she works full time as a veterinary anesthesia technician. She loves coffee, candles, fall weather, mid-century modern furniture, and a good alien romance (complete with fancy peens).

Kate Prior

When Kate was in the 7th grade, she dug out and she booted up a computer older than her from her parents’ attic, determined to write an extensive honeymoon for her favorite Pride & Prejudice characters. She spent the next ten years earmarking the pages of kissing scenes before she thought she had to stop and be a serious adult that did sensible things. 

That didn’t work out. Now she’s a romance author with bad puns.

Colette Rhodes

Colette Rhodes is a paranormal romance author from New Zealand. She loves to write about love in all its forms, and adores imperfect heroes and heroines who find perfection in each other. You’ll often find her trying to justify her degree by including ancient history and mythological influences in her work. If she’s not writing, then you’re almost certain to find her reading—ideally with a cup of tea in hand and a scented candle burning to match the mood.
