Meet the Author

Beth Daniels began life as a novelist in 1990 with the publication of her first romantic-suspense story, written under the pseudonym Beth Henderson. Since that time she has worked with editors at Harlequin, Berkley, Simon and Schuster�s Aladdin Paperbacks, Kensington/Zebra, and a number of other smaller publishing houses. She�s written fiction under a variety of pseudonyms and ventured into non-fiction in 2009 writing articles and books about the writing process, particularly the fiction writing process. She continues to spin fictional tales as Beth Henderson and J.B. Dane, switching from a background in romance (romantic-comedy, historical romantic adventure, romantic-suspense) to focus on mystery, urban fantasy and Steampunk.
