Lynn Crain, a true romantic, started her writing career at the tender age of 12 when she decided to write a novel destined to compete with Gone With The Wind. Born in Ohio, she learned much about the farming life before being moved to the hot, southwestern desert in Nevada. She lived there most her life except for a recent stint in Vienna, Austria as her husband worked his dream job. Now she splits her time between her Nevada home and a new place in New Mexico near Santa Fe where all she has to do is go to her backyard for inspiration.

Her days are filled with writing space adventures, fantasy with lots of sword play and hot, sensual contemporary romances, many of the paranormal variety, while her windows overlook the pines and wildlife of Northern New Mexico. One of the things she loves most of all is hearing from her readers at You can find her hanging out online at her website, her blog, on Twitter or on Facebook. 

Victoria Craven was born to tell stories. Throughout her childhood she was a daydreamer. Growing up she told the most outrageous tales to her friends that got her in trouble now and then. She escaped the mundane to live in her fantasies: She was a mermaid, a princess, a spy, and an explorer trekking across the tundra in Antarctica. Even as an adult she saved just a little part of herself to drift into her dream world.
Then one day she said to herself “I’m going to write a book,” and that’s what she did. She had no idea what it took to be a writer, thinking all you had to do was add some words and ideas to a page and ‘poof,’ a book, and every word was golden. What a rude awakening when her writer friends took her into the light and showed her just how much she had to learn. That process is still going on today!
Victoria has published the first two books in a historical paranormal series with the third one coming out in 2017.  
Currently, she resides in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area with her wonderful husband who spoils her rotten. And from time to time is her critique buddy.  She is the mother of three beautiful daughters, and grandmother to four wonderful grandchildren.
When she isn’t writing, she doting on her grandchildren, or curled up on the couch with her husband, or having a sleepover with her best friends.

And she still saves just a little bit of her life for those daydreams.
