A music lover, especially classical, she’s married, has two grown sons and lives in New York City.
KATY BERRITT - Treasurer
Katy loves to write stories that have a humorous slant although occasionally she writes something serious. She loves not-so-perfect heroes, quirky heroines and secondary characters that you would like to disown if they are relatives but unfortunately are stuck with. Whether romantic comedy or something more serious, she hopes all her stories bring a bit of LIFE, LOVE, and LAUGHTER into your life.
Katy live in New York City, a city rich in history, weird residents and fantastic neighborhoods, a treasure trove to draw upon when writing.
B. JAMES - Secretary
A long time reader of romances, B. James has been a member of RWA-NYC since 2017 when she began writing as a means of keeping herself busy after moving on from her teaching career. She's been interested in exploring through her romance novels, dating relationships from a sweet and inspirational lens.
U. RENEE - Past President
Ursula Renée crafts stories with diverse characters who must question their beliefs to find their happily-ever-after. She prefers the early to mid-twentieth century, when people began challenging society's conventions and expressing their individuality.
Ursula loves to travel. After each adventure she returns to New York where she lives with her son and two cats. When she is not writing, she enjoys gardening, photography, stone carving and model building.
