About the author (2010)

Courtney Milan lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, a marginally trained dog and an attack cat.

Before she started writing books, Courtney experimented with numerous occupations. She has trained dogs, written legal briefs, sold newspaper subscriptions and written computer programs. Having given up on actually being able to do any of these things, she's taken to heart the axiom that "those who can't, teach." When she isn't reading, writing or sleeping, she can be found in the vicinity of a classroom.

Courtney loves hearing from readers. You can visit her on the Web to find out more about her and her newest releases: www.courtneymilan.com
