Pati Nagle was born and raised in the mountains of northern New Mexico. An avid student of music, history, and humans in general, she loves the outdoors but hides from the sun. She writes in a variety of genres, but is most often drawn to fantasy or (as P.G. Nagle) historical fiction. Her stories have appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction, the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and in various other magazines and anthologies, including Elf Magic, which featured Kind Hunter, the story that sparked the aelven world. Her Blood of the Kindred series includes The Betrayal, Heart of the Exiled, and Swords Over Fireshore. A contemporary series featuring the aelven began with Immortal and continues with Eternal. Pati Nagle still lives in the mountains in New Mexico with her husband and lots of wildlife. She loves to walk in the woods and look up at the stars.
