Kait Ballenger hated reading when she was a child, because she was horrible at it. Then by chance she picked up the Harry Potter series, magically fell in love with reading, and never looked back. When she realized shortly after that she could tell her own stories, and they could be about falling in love, her fate was sealed. She earned her B.A in English from Stetson University-like the Stetson cowboy hat-followed by an M.F.A in Writing from Spalding University. After stints working as a real vampire aka a phlebotomist, a bingo caller, a professional bellydancer, and an adjunct English professor, Kait finally decided that her eight-year-old self knew best: she's meant to be a romance writer. When Kait's not preoccupied with writing captivating paranormal romance, page-turning suspense or love scenes that make even seasoned romance readers blush, she can usually be found spending time with her family, being an accidental crazy cat lady (she has 4 now-don't ask), or with her nose buried in a good book. She loves to travel, especially abroad, and experience new places. She lives in Florida with her doting librarian husband, her two adorable young sons, a loveable mangy mutt of a dog, and the four conniving felines.
