SLOAN CHRISTOPHER was born and raised near Hillsborough, North Carolina. An imaginative child, she was always reading, drawing, or concocting some fantastic tale, which she continues to this day. She inherited her fondness for true crime and mysteries from her late grandmother, but quickly became hooked on historical romance after she came across Cassie Edwards’ Savage series. As a freelance writer, she’s written everything from obituaries to web copy, though her preference leans toward romantic suspense. When she’s not working on a new story, Sloan works as a web and graphic designer. She still lives just a few miles from her hometown with her husband, two children, and a herd of stray cats that she insists on feeding, much to her husband’s chagrin.
