Born in the middle of winter in Michigan more (how many more I'm not
saying) than 30 years ago, I was lacking a name until my father saw
the aurora borealis and decided this was a sign, the right name. (I'm
so glad my mother insisted on "Aurora" and not "Borealis!") In spite
of my name, I have never seen the aurora (but my younger sister in Alaska
has and says its constantly changing, shifting nature is like mine).
As a child I moved through the Midwest, living in four different states
before I was in the third grade. Finally ending up in dusty, empty West
Texas, I discovered how much I love to read fantasy, and writing is
giving me an outlet to live it, as well.
