Z.A. Maxfield started writing in 2007 on a dare from her children and never looked back. Pathologically disorganized, and perennially optimistic, she writes as much as she can, reads as much as she dares, and enjoys her time with family and friends. If anyone asks her how a wife and mother of four manages to find time for a writing career, she'll answer, "It's amazing what you can accomplish if you give up housework."
Her published books include Crossing Borders, Epic Award finalist St. Nacho's, Drawn Together, Physical Therapy, Blue Fire, Fugitive Color and Jacob's Ladder, from Loose Id; The Long Way Home, from Aspen Mountain Press; ePistols at Dawn, from Samhain Publishing; and Notturno, Stirring Up Trouble and Vigil, from MLR Press.
