Charissa Weaks is an award-winning author of historical fantasy and speculative fiction, a writing mentor, and freelance editor. Charissa served as the 2019 President and PRO Liason of her local Romance Writers of America chapter and is a member of the Historical Novel Society and the Women’s Fiction Association. She is also the creator of Once Upon Anthologies, a series of paranormal and fantasy romance short stories and novelettes. Over the last decade, Charissa has worked with and edited for published and unpublished authors alike. Her strengths lie in author branding and the development of high-concept plots alongside strong emotional arcs. She has a love for historical tales, fantasy of all kinds, and unique sci-fi, and if those stories include a heart-rending romance, all the better. Charissa loves a good romantic comedy/contemporary romance, and also longs to see more diverse authors and characters on the shelves.
