About the Author

Dear Readers,

It’s no secret that I’m a gamer girl. Games are often overlooked as a storytelling medium, but when they’re well-written, the characters and plots are just as compelling as any book or movie. They draw you in to their fictional worlds and refuse to let you go (as evidenced by the counter that shows how many hours I’ve spent playing!).

My favorite games are the ones that let you create your player character, your vision of what the hero should be. For some people, it’s a way to insert themselves into the game and really embrace the role-playing aspect. Somewhere along the line, this led me to wonder: can I use a game like this as the plot of a romance?

Saving the damsel in distress from her prison has been used countless times in games. Just as a certain popular pair of plumber brothers seemed unlikely heroes to save the princess, I wanted everyman Caleb to “win” by methods other than hacking and slashing through hordes of enemies to get to the captured Alizeira. (Because let’s face it – very few of us would be able to rely on physical combat skills were we actually plopped into the middle of a game.) While writing, I aimed for a light-hearted fantasy with a sweet romance at its core. It’s a familiar story, but with some twists along the way.

Other gamers will probably be able to spot my influences while reading. If you’d like to read my other ramblings about the games I love, don’t forget to check out my blog at www.thealanden.com!
