An unrepentant biblioholic, Rowan Speedwell spends half her time pretending to be a law librarian, half her time pretending to be a database manager, half her time pretending to be a fifteenth-century Aragonese noblewoman, half her time… wait a minute… hmm. Well, one thing she doesn't pretend to be is good at math. She is good at pretending, though.

In her copious spare time (hah) she does needlework, calligraphy and illumination, and makes jewelry. She has a master's degree in history from the University of Chicago, is a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, and lives in a Chicago suburb with the obligatory Writer's Cat and way too many books.

“You can't always choose the people you work with, but you can choose to learn how to deal with them. They are all different." - Charles”
Rowan Speedwell, Kindred Hearts

“Most people - and I'm guilty of it as well - think of passion as hot, fiery, impulsive. But listening to you made me realize that passion can be a deep, warm, steady flame too. The kind of fire that keeps a man warm at night - or melts an ice wall that would drown a flashier spark.”
Rowan Speedwell, Finding Zach

“Life is the death of all of us.' - Tristan”
Rowan Speedwell, Kindred Hearts

I DO have a sequel in mind (about Jesse, of course!) but it's not got all the details worked out yet, so it will be a while! Glad you like the story, though!
