"Where History Meets Mystery with a Touch of Romance." Born with an exhaustingly active imagination, Kari Bovee caught the writing bug as a small child and has been crafting stories ever since. She graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature with an emphasis in Creative Writing. Since college she has written for technical magazines, home and entertainment magazines, and various newsletters. But the non-fiction world didn't satisfy her creative imagination and she began to write novels. Fascinated with history and a lover of a great mystery, Kari combined the two and has completed three historical mysteries and is currently working on a fourth. Her stories feature true-life historical events and personalities embellished with her own imagination to create fun and engaging mysteries.
In her other life, Kari has been a life-long equestrian and has competed in Dressage, Sport Horse and Working Western. A devotee of natural horsemanship, Kari is on a horsewoman's journey in search of the ultimate communication and relationship with her four-legged companions. It is Kari's aim to feature this dynamic bond between horse and human in her future works.

Thanks to a science fiction-loving father and an artistic mother, Sarah Shade started attending Renaissance festivals and fandom conventions at the age of eight. At age nine, she read the Lord of the Rings trilogy and fell madly and irrevocably in love with fantasy literature and with Frodo. With her early start in theatre and a love of dance, Sarah spent her school years studying both. She holds a MFA in Dance, a MA in Theater and Dance and a BS in Exercise Science. True to form, both Sarah’s thesis and dissertation illustrated how the dancer personifies Joseph Campbell’s hero and incorporated the images and symbolism of medieval art. After taking ownership of a dance studio, Sarah wrote a re-imagined version of “Saint George and the Dragon” for a holiday performance. Then and there, she fell madly in love with writing but was too busy to pursue it. After the passing of another year and another holiday script, this time a unique fairytale called “Winter Wishes,” Sarah knew she had to write. She began her first ever novel, a dystopian romance. Sarah’s love of all things fantasy has held true through the years. She writes and illustrates fairytale children’s books and writes fantasy and science fiction romance.
