About the Author
Born in Seattle, WA and raised & living in southern California with her husband Denny, and their three wonderful, miniature, long-haired dachshund's, Gryphon, Phoenix and Elsa, LK Gardner-Griffie is definitely a west coast girl, but loves to travel. The love of writing and travel were fostered very young by reading Louisa May Alcott's Little Women and deciding that she and Jo had a great deal in common. While she didn't have 3 sisters, and a father absentee in the war, the making up of stories, dramatic feelings, and a quick temper were enough for LK to know that she and Jo would have been kindred spirits. LK Gardner-Griffie started writing her first, never to be published, novel at the ripe old age of 9. She believes in that magic nation of imagination, and in everything sees the story lurking beneath the surface. Outside the world of writing, LK loves her pups, listening to music and even more, singing. Country music is her favored genre (because that's what she sings). She and her husband Denny are strong supporters of Cal State Fullerton Baseball (Go Titans!) and they thoroughly enjoy supporting their nieces and nephews in their sport and music related endeavors. After having spent time working in a variety of jobs, such as retail sales, insurance, throwing papers for the LA Times, pre-school teacher, and a brief, but memorable stint at a gas station, LK currently works for an international shipping company in the capacity of business, process, system support manager. She has decided it is time to carve out time for writing as there are several more projects that she has in the works, as well as those that are still just a glimmer in her mind.
