Arthur, Keri

Keri started writing when she was about twelve. She'd just finished reading one of Elaine Mitchell's Brumby books, and hated the fact she killed off her favorite character--so she rewrote the book and changed the ending. She hasn't stopped writing since, though it's only in the last few years she seriously thought about getting published.In 1997, she placed second in the Washington Romance Writers Novel Beginnings contest (specialty romance) with Heart of the Hunter. In 2000, she was short-listed in the Random House George Turner Prize with Spook Squad (urban fantasy). Dancing with the Devil is her first published book. She lives in Melbourne, Australia, and is a dessert and function cook by trade married to a wonderful man who not only supports her writing, but who does all the housework as well. They have one daughter, one dog and a garden full of weeds. When she's not working or writing, she can be found parked in front of the TV watching re-runs of the X-Files or Buffy.
