Author: Rowan Keats

Rowan Keats has enjoyed a lifelong affair with all things medieval. An avid reader of romance novels from the age of twelve, her dreams are regularly filled with fire-breathing dragons, feisty maidens, and sword-wielding heroes. The medieval era is a great place to build a mental castle.

A redheaded Scottish grandmother and family ties to Inverness sparked an enduring interest in Scotland and its fierce, bold history. Coupled with Rowan’s love of the Middle Ages and an itch to put words to paper, that fascination developed into a career in writing. After several years of penning romantic tales–and winning a contest or two along the way–she sold her first Scottish medieval romance to Signet Eclipse in early 2012. Sound the trumpets!

Rowan lives in Eastern Canada with her daughter and the family menagerie.
