With Jincey Lumpkin (see her Woman We Love profile in this issue), Natalia Ramirez is one half of the writing duo Jincey + Natalia and hard at work creating the Dreamspinners series of magic-themed novels. For Ramirez, who has a background in fashion and advertising, the partnership concept just clicked. “We got the opportunity to work on an advertising gig together, and through that experience, we realized that we are creative soulmates. We felt the special connection that we imagine is what musicians feel when they jam together,” she says. Ramirez is also the U.S. editor of Lash magazine, a Paris-based digital fashion publication. Before accepting that editorial position, she created the Enter Pronoun collection of gender-neutral cosmetics, which were featured in German Vogue, Women´s Wear Daily and xoJane. “Writing for fashion wasn´t enough,” Ramirez confides. “I realized that my true desire is to write fiction. What I love about working with Jincey is that in our partnership, we challenge each other. Seeing the world through her lens opens my perspective. We are constantly learning from each other, and knowledge is a big source of inspiration for me.” The pair is currently pitching the series-so stay tuned! -KL
