About Auria Jourdain
With three published works, I'm still trying to decide which sub-genre is my favorite. I started with historical romances, and two of the six are now published. I wrote my first YA novel, Spirit of the Northwoods, for my 17 year old autistic son, hoping to spread awareness about the daily struggles that an autistic person endures. I'm currently working on a Romantic Suspense series at the moment-sort of a spin-off of Spirit with some of the same secondary characters but strictly for adults. I'd love to try my hand at a sweet romance YA series in the future.
I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with my husband of 21 years and my four children. I spend the long winters plotting and scheming my next book, and in the mild summers, my family and I spend every waking moment we can hiking and kayaking the Northwoods. Living fifteen miles from the shores of Lake Superior, my muse is often piqued by the awe-inspiring beauty that surrounds me. I live where I play, and I can't imagine a more fitting place for me!
