Words were once Ivy Blackwater’s playground. But when life whisked her into scientific academia, she abandoned creative writing to focus on a doctorate and establish herself in the professional world. A PhD in psychology, full-time career, and family later, she’s writing creatively again.

Ivy explores disability, diversity, and acceptance through contemporary romance fiction. She is seeking representation for a novel that highlights Down syndrome, mental illness, and resilience. Her current work in progress delves into unorthodox love relationships, autism, and commitment.

In her spare time, Ivy enjoys writing poems and short stories (some of which are shared here), listening to music (the greatest therapy), and having fun with her family. She is the proud mother of a child who has Down syndrome and believes love is life’s greatest gift.
