Shelby Mahurin grew up on a modest farm in rural Indiana, where cows were transformed into dragons and sticks were transformed into wands. Her wild imagination hasn't waned with maturity, so she still plays make-believe every day--this time with words instead of cows. With her very tall husband and semiferal children, she still lives near that childhood farm. Her debut novel is Serpent & Dove. Shelby Maurin's website is www.shelbymahurin.com.
