Colleen Helme lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband and children. Her love of fantasy began as a child when she read A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle and continues today not only as a writer, but a voracious reader. Her creative nature is also manifest as a watercolor artist and musician. Her hero is her son, Clayton, who as a teenager, faced cancer with faith and courage. He is now cancer-free and living proof that miracles do happen.
