Kerry has been a writer since before she could read. Her father used to copy down the stories she dictated, most of which involved Princesses who got bored with their Princes, and ran off with the Dragon instead. To this day, she likes surprising her readers. And she still likes dragons! She's fascinated with the "other"--ghosts, psychic powers, mythical/mythological beings--and with human relationships and interactions. She loves history, and how it connects with and influences our present and our futures, and she also loves a good mystery. And science! But most of all, she loves stories--hers or someone else's, telling them, listening to them, reading them. Which is why she's thrilled to be here, writing them for you to (hopefully) enjoy!She has a degree in Comparative Literature (French and Middle English--think Rabelais, Flaubert, and Gide, side by side with Chaucer, Geoffrey of Monmouth, and the Welsh Triads) from U.C. Berkeley, and a Master's in Teaching English and Mathematics from the University of Portland. She lives in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest with her husband, two "kids" in their mid-to-late teens, assorted cats and dogs, and more hot pepper plants than anyone could reasonably consume.

Soon this mysterious woman and flesh and blood man share a closeness they cannot deny. But just as their love begins to bloom, Constance’s presence starts mysteriously fading away, soon to be gone forever. Is their love doomed—or is it strong enough to transcend time, and even death itself?
