Lili Saintcrow was born in New Mexico (which probably explains everything, given the nuclear testing) and spent her childhood bouncing around the world as a military brat. She fell in love with writing in second grade and has done it obsessively ever since. She currently resides in the rainy Pacific Northwest with her children, dogs, cat, and assorted other strays, including a metric ton of books holding her house together.
You can find her books here, and an additional almost-daily dose of lunacy on her blog–where she does not speak of herself in the third person. Yet. (Also available for Kindle subscription!) If you like fan forums, the Madhouse is open and waiting.
