Stephanie Reisner makes her living as a full-time writer/publisher and is published both traditionally and independently, but with focus on her successful indie career. With four pen names, she has over 18 published novels in various genres to her credit. She is the author of the independently published, bestselling Gilded Lily series, which started with Training Amy – a book that has sold over 50,000 copies. She is also multi-published in both shorter fiction and non-fiction (with over 30 non-fiction books to her credit). Most of her work is independently published at this time excluding one novel and a handful of short stories. In 2018, her independent novel Thirteen Covens: Bloodlines Part One was a CIPA EVVY Award Winner (2nd Place/Horror). She also runs Darkerwood Publishing Group, a micro-press that publishes six additional authors under two successful imprints, DB Publishing (non-fiction) and Midnight Fantasy Press (erotic romance fiction).
Stephanie has been a member of the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers since the early 1990s. In 2018 she was the RMFW IPAL Liaison. In the past, she has served as the RMFW Webmaster and a Colorado Gold contest judge. She has sat on numerous RMFW committees over the years and was a regular blog and newsletter contributor in 2016-2017. She continues to help run the IPAL sponsored NovelRama, and the Arvada/Westminster IPAL Coffee Klatches. She has presented and sat on panels at several Colorado Gold conferences over the years. She is both a PAL and an IPAL member and was an IWOTY Finalist in 2017. Outside of RMFW, she has mentored independent authors and regularly participates in forums where writers help writers.
Beyond her writing life, Stephanie is an acclaimed esoteric teacher, a plant wrangler, and a cat herder. She enjoys super-hero movies, collecting edged weapons, reading graphic novels, watching horror films, hiking, and yoga. She lives along the front range with her husband and three pampered house cats.
