Their Kennedy Fox writes in genres such as Romance, New Adult Romance, and Romantic Suspense.
"Once someone’s chapter is done, the other reads through it and, edits/marks it up/makes changes. This is what we call blending our voices. I will reconstruct some of her sentences, and she will change some of mine. So our voices blend through every chapter. The goal is to make it so readers can’t tell that two people wrote the book. It should flow as if one person wrote it, which is always the goal, so it doesn’t read choppy," Brooke Cumberland says.
