About the Author:

Darragh Metzger was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. The middle of three children, she entered the world via her parents' house. Her mother walked into the hospital carrying the infant 45 minutes after Darragh was born, so she knew from a tender age that she had a legacy of hardiness to live up to. During her college junior year, spent in various points around Europe, she started entertaining fellow students and travelers with tales of high fantasy and adventure inspired by her travels, which she scrawled in a series of wire-bound notebooks. Back in the states, while attempting to make her living in the world's two lowest-paying professions--acting and writing--she appeared (briefly) in a number of commercials and films, toured with dinner theater companies and spent years performing in theater product ions around the northwest. She also played several roles for a jousting and armored stage combat theatrical troupe known as The Seattle Knights, started and directed by artist and fight director Dameon Willich. Eventually the two married, and from there came something of a career switch, as Darragh learned to joust, fight in armor, wield a sword and shield with conviction, and shoot arrows and lance helpless lettuce heads from a galloping horse, all in the name of entertainment. Her publishing credits include plays, non-fiction articles, interviews, novels, and short stories. An amateur musician, she sings, arranges music, and writes songs for two music groups. Though retired from active jousting, she's still an avid horsewoman, and loves trail riding in her rare and mostly stolen moments of free time.
