Ariele has always been a romantic and an artist at her core and when higher education administration wasn’t fulfilling her creative spark; she decided to begin anew and start a new journey pursuing something she has always loved…Stories.
So as her first foray into the publishing world, she became an editorial intern at Harlequin. There, Ariele developed a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of what makes a romance/love story successful and absorbed anything she could read or learn to become a better editor. She has worked with authors at all stages and is passionate about providing guidance and support to help them achieve their goals as well as tell their stories in the most compelling way possible.
When Ariele is not editing, she can be found exploring new places and cultures, always eagerly learning with a good book or story never far from reach. She can also be found crafting her own stories for her friends, albeit in a more collaborative and improvisational setting as a Dungeon Master.
Ariele is particularly drawn to stories with beautifully complex people that always find a way to their HEA. She is excited for the opportunity to continue her journey as an editor at Dragonblade and help bring more great love stories to readers everywhere.
