Lyss Em is an author and editor. She left behind a career in IT and delved into indie publishing in 2015 and has since penned two novels and a novella in the romance genre, as well as a nonfiction book about tropes. As a freelance editor, Lyss specializes in romance and blogs about such, but her writing interests have veered into other genres.
