About the Author
Jane Shoup is an award winning author working in several different genres. In fact, she's happiest when she can roll several into one novel - despite being told on numerous occasions that it's against the rules. (Probably a clue to her rebellious nature.) Born in Indiana, transplanted to North Carolina, she's the mother of three young adult daughters, two of whom were her first and only Facebook fans for many weeks. Sadly, social networking is not a strength, although she is working at it.
