Irene Vartanoff

Location: Maryland Romance Writers Stage

Irene Vartanoff Award-winning novelist Irene Vartanoff fell in love with comic books as a teenager, at the same time that she discovered romance novels. Over 100 of her fan letters to the comics editors were published, causing such a sensation at DC Comics that she was written into several comic book stories, most memorably in Metal Men and The Flash. A letter column controversy about whether she really existed continued for issue after issue of Metamorpho.

Today Irene writes several kinds of novels: superhero action adventures, contemporary romance, women's fiction, oddball light paranormals, and more. She has started a murder mystery, but hasn't quite figured out who the killer is yet. Irene has published numerous articles on writing topics and blog posts about romance. She loves to speak at romance conferences.
