Award winning author Abigail Drake has spent her life traveling the world, and collecting stories wherever she visited. She majored in Japanese and Economics in college and worked in import/export and as an ESL teacher before she committed herself full time to writing.

I love being able to create characters and stories, and make them come to life. I adore the whole process, from the first draft to the final completed manuscript.

Get it? Because of my name. But I'm not really a bandit. I'm a spayed female, brown tabby Domestic Shorthair. The shelter staff thi Read more of this blog post »

“But I’m curious. Why didn’t you change Capone’s name?” “Because I love him for who he is, the good parts and the not so good parts. I don’t want to change a thing about him. Not even his name. That’s how it is when you truly love someone. You accept them, faults and all.”
Abigail Drake, Love, Chocolate, and a Dog Named Al Capone

“Revenge is a dish best served cold. So is ice cream.”
Abigail Drake, The Enchanted Garden Cafe

“Always listen to your conscience unless it’s telling you to skip dessert.”
