About the Author


Claire Rooney lives on the East Coast and divides her time between the mountains and the sea. During the day, she moonlights as an analyst, holding a degree in computer science with a minor in creative writing. At night, she comes home to an ever revolving number of critters and works hard until the wee hours writing and trying to keep critter paws off the keyboard. She is, at this time, far enough over forty for it to be rude for you to ask and 100 percent certain that gravity works. But she’s still cute as a button.
