About the Author

Barbara Monajem grew up on the west coast of Canada in a land of mountains, cedar trees and rain. When not gazing dreamily at the mountains or climbing the next-door neighbor's forbidden cedar tree, she spent her time curled in an armchair with a book, waiting for the rain to stop so she could go back outdoors to play. Little did she know that the rain was tempting her to another sort of fun-a lifelong addiction to an alternative to real life. Apart from a short period of competition with a childhood friend who read impossibly fast and who won the most-books-per-week competition hands down, all this reading was pure pleasure. It inspired Barbara to write her first fantasy about apple tree gnomes when she was eight years old.

At the age of twelve, Barbara and her parents and sisters spent a year in Oxford, England. Since most of her childhood reading was Brit lit, it's not surprising she felt entirely at home. She spent that year exploring Oxford by bus and on foot, spending her pocket money at Blackwell's Bookshop and playing twosy-ball against the school wall. She had the unimaginable thrill of grubbing around in an archological dig, unearthing shards of pottery while secretly hoping for bones instead. She got to explore Stonehenge and walk on Hadrian's Wall, but she still regrets not being allowed to spend the night in the haunted tower at Warwick Castle. Still, that year in England firmly grounded her in a love of history. When her mother introduced her to the books of Georgette Heyer, her desire to write Regency romances was born, although she didn't admit it to herself for years.

After returning to Canada and surviving the high school years (which included a best-forgotten foray into teen melodrama), she studied English literature at the University of British Columbia. Marriage, children and a move to Montreal ensued. Through the long and cold-but-beautiful winters, stories simmered inside her. Several years later, after moving to Georgia, U.S.A., she completed and published a middle grade fantasy. After that came a romance that is still under her bed, and a few mysteries that kept turning paranormal no matter how much she tried to remain at least somewhat realistic. Frequent visits to New Orleans may have had something to do with this. She succumbed to the dark and lovely moods of the French Quarter and wrote several paranormal romances.

And then, all of a sudden, she caved in and wrote a Regency romance, and immediately became hooked. Now she divides her writing time between paranormal and historical worlds, although an urge to combine them has already raised its pesky little head.
