Maureen L. Mills lives and writes in Draper, Utah with her wonderfully awesome and understanding husband. ( He’s awfully cute, too.) She enjoys having her kids nearby, and is thrilled with each new addition to the family, be it human, canine, feline, or other. When she’s not writing or teaching writing, she stays busy making cosplays for her kids (who look much better in them than she does), knitting, gardening, and, of course, reading. Lots of reading. She has the dubious honor of being perhaps the only person in history to get kicked out of a school class for reading too much. As if reading too much was even possible.
