About the Author
Samantha Kroese has lived many places in her life but currently resides in the frozen north of Minnesota. She braves the harsh winters with her magnificent Arabian stallion and her four rescued cats. She hopes to one day start a retirement ranch for elderly and abused horses.
When she's not writing you can often find her adventuring in the outdoors, researching the paranormal, or gallivanting at the local Renaissance fair.
As someone who came from a difficult and sometimes dark past she has a burning desire to write characters and worlds that inspire hope even in the midst of horrific darkness. She's also an avid fan of both fantasy and horror and devours all she can about either subject. She especially loves dragons, elves, and misunderstood villains. She hopes to let as many of the thousands of characters clattering around in her head out as she can before the end.
