About the Author

Keri Arthur began writing at age 12 and has finished twenty-three novels to date. She was born and bred in Melbourne, Australia and spent her childhood enjoying a rich, fantasy life which worried her family a bit. Luckily, she has put all that imagination and creativity to good use by writing the bestselling paranormal romance Riley Jensen Guardian series. This full time writer and mom has won RT’s Career Achievement award for urban fantasy.
When she’s not creating fiction, she likes to walk, visit the gym, watch far more TV than is advisable, and garden. She and her family still live in Melbourne.
