About the Author

I was born in Alberta, Canada, and I’ve lived here ever since. I attended the University of Alberta, choosing a ‘practical’ degree in health sciences, and married my husband, Jeff, along the way, just after my twentieth birthday. At thirty I had three busy children and one busy husband. I decided it was time to take a break from my common sense career. Since I was chucking practicality anyways, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to write fiction. I’ve counted fictional characters among my best friends since my mother gave me Pierre Berton’s The Secret World of Og for my sixth birthday, but this was the first time I let myself invent my own characters and take them past the first few chapters. If I had known writing would be this addictive, I might have shied away. I do love it. So far, I’ve only written historical fiction, but I grew up devouring mysteries and someday might try my hand at one of those. The biggest downside I’ve found to writing is that I have less time to spend immersed in my favorite books. I'll read anything by Eva Ibbotson and Georgette Heyer, I love history (especially the history of science) and I've recently discovered Dorothy Dunnett. Don't try attempting the Lymond Chronicles without the published guide!

The Dark Before Dawn by Jaima Fixsen is another great book! Kasper Stark Is a young officer trying to stay alive and find out who is responsible for killing a Prussian count. One of his leads is a young woman who. . . Who exactly is she? Set in 1814 Vienna, this is a master piece of intrigue, romance, and thrilling action that will keep you reading way past your bed time! I loved how this was set in a city we seldom see in historical novels, yet it was brought to life by the author’s talented writing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Vienna, 1814. Intrigue, international politics, ambition, power, murder, with a thread of complicated desire. As always, Jaima Fixsen brings impeccable attention to detail and passion for history to her narrative. Fans of her Fairchild series will find plenty of the witty exchanges and heartfelt emotions they fell in love with, historical mystery fans are in for a treat--this plot is twisty and clever. I'm very much looking forward to the next story in the series!
