Natalie J. Damschroder grew up in Massachusetts and loves the New England Patriots more than anything. (Except her family. And writing and reading. And popcorn.) She's a multi-published, award-winning author of romantic adventure and paranormal romance, and the mother of two grown daughters, one of whom is also a novelist. (The other one prefers math. Smart kid. Practical.) You can learn more about her and her books at www.nataliedamschroder.com.
