Shéa MacLeod has dreamed of writing novels since before she could hold a crayon. She totally blames her mother.

Her favorite poem as a child was ‘Jabberwocky’, and Her favorite authors were Agatha Christie and Edgar Allan Poe. Which probably explains a lot.

After a six year sojourn in London, England, a dearth of good donuts has driven her back to her hometown. She now resides in the leafy green hills outside Portland, Oregon where she indulges in her fondness for strong coffee, Ancient Aliens reruns, lemon curd, and dragons.

Because everything's better with dragons.

Shéa is the author of the SUNWALKER SAGA (a fast paced urban fantasy series with a kick-ass heroine published by Montlake) and DRAGON WARS (a post-apocalyptic series with dragons)a

“I was feeling particularly nasty tonight. Or maybe it was the darkness in me. Sort of PMS on crack.”
Shéa MacLeod, Kissed by Smoke

“May the heat of the sun, glow of moon, glory of fire, swiftness of wind, strength of water, and endurance of earth guide and protect me this day. As I will, so mote it be.”
Shéa MacLeod, Potions, Poisons, and Peril

“Negativity that has gathered in this place, I banish you with my light and my grace. You have no power and no hold here, And of you I have no fear. Begone forever away from me. As I will so mote it be.”
Shéa MacLeod, Potions, Poisons, and Peril
