Kristen Callihan is a child of the 80's, which means she's worn neon skirts, black-lace gloves and combat boots (although never all at once) and can quote John Hughes movies with the best of them. A life-long daydreamer, she finally realized that the characters in her head needed a proper home and thus hit the keyboard. She believes that falling in love is one of the headiest experiences a person can have, so naturally she writes romance. Her love of superheroes, action movies and history led her to write historical paranormals. She lives in the Washington D.C. area and, when not writing, looks after two children, one husband and a dog - the fish can fend for themselves!
