C.H. Sprague was born a stone's throw from Lake Erie and grew up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. She wrote a weekly column at a small newspaper in Virginia for more than ten years. The majority of the readers in that rural conservative area felt strongly about the right to bear arms and eat cows. It was there the author learned that people who raise cattle don't want to read about the virtues of tofu. She abandoned journalism in favor of fiction some years ago and now writes light urban fantasy with an environmental slant, as well as other fiction. On her weekly blog she writes about books, movies, and life on Earth. www.theconstantharper.com
