Barb Hendee grew up just north of Seattle, Washington. She completed her master's degree in composition theory at the University of Idaho and then taught college English for ten years in Colorado. She and her husband, J.C., are coauthors of the bestselling Noble Dead Saga. They live in a quirky little town near Portland, Oregon with two geriatric and quite demanding cats.
