Meet the Author

Stephanie Draven is currently a denizen of Baltimore, that city of ravens and purple night skies. She lives there with her favorite nocturnal creatures–three scheming cats and a deliciously wicked husband. And when she is not busy with dark domestic rituals, she writes her books.


Stephanie has always been a storyteller. In elementary school, she channeled Scheherazade, weaving a series of stories to charm children into sitting with her each day at the lunch table. When she was a little older, Stephanie scared all the girls at her sleepovers with ghost stories.


She should have known she was born to hold an audience in her thrall, but Stephanie resisted her writerly urges and graduated from college with a B.A. in Government. Then she went to Law School, where she learned how to convincingly tell the tallest tales of all!


A longtime lover of ancient lore, Stephanie enjoys re-imagining myths for the modern age. She doesn’t believe that true love is ever simple or without struggle so her work tends to explore the sacred within the profane, the light under the loss and the virtue hidden in vice. She counts it amongst her greatest pleasures when, from her books, her readers learn something new about the world or about themselves.


Stephanie also writes historical fiction as Stephanie Dray and has a series of forthcoming novels from Berkley Books featuring Cleopatra’s daughter.

    Deliciously Torturous

    Who wants to read a smutty story, she said? Hmph! My definition of smutty differs wildly. I think of graphic descriptions, every chapter full of just straight on erotica. This? Is hot. Engaging. Torturous because it is so brief. You hate him, the tortured soul, you hate her, the brittle woman. And then? Well, you'll just have to read it. It will make your blood burn and your breath catch, and when you read the last word, you find yourself tortured and enraptured. Smut, indeed. Hmph. Way to sell yourself short, Ms. Draven. Hmph.

    Intriguing short story

    About 60 pages of intrigue. It was a little hokey, but it was sweet and passionate all the same. I liked the story and would read a longer version.
