Hi, I’m Savannah Carlisle! Actually, about that…I’ll come back to that in a minute.

Savannah Carlisle

I’m a published nonfiction author with my debut novel due to come out May 7, 2024. I’m also currently editing my second novel and wriitng what I hope will be my third. They’re all small town romances set in fun, beachy locales. So, if you’re ready for a mental vacation, you’ve come to the right place!⁠

Now to let you in on my little secret…my legal name is Kristi Dosh. I decided to go with a pen name when I started writing romance. People have lots of reasons for choosing to use a pen name, but as you can tell mine wasn’t anonymity. ⁠

If you happen to know me already as Kristi, then you know I’ve spent more than a decade now as a sports business reporter for outlets such as ESPN and Forbes and have published a book on the business of college football under that name. ⁠It’s also the name I used in my former life as an attorney.

Having spent around 12 years building up my platform as a sports business expert, my website and social channels under my real name are all full of dedicated sports fans…who I love. But, they’re not exactly the same demographic that might want to read romance novels.

So, I get to reinvent myself and be someone brand new, which I think will be a lot of fun. If you decide to follow me on this journey, I’m glad to have you along!
