Lily Danes used to sneak Harlequin Presents out of the library between her Sweet Valley High books. Before she was caught, she developed a lifelong appreciation for romance novels. After she was caught, she was forced to have an awkward conversation with her parents about the dirty bits.
She has a degree in English Literature from the University of Washington and will make fun of people who ask what you can do with an English degree, since the answer is obviously “wear pajamas all day.” Along the way, she also picked up a couple of masters degrees, though she’s still not entirely sure why.
Lily writes the odd books in the Lost Coast Harbor series. The books with odd numbers, that is. Whether the books themselves are odd is really up to the reader. The lovely Eve Kincaid handles the even books. Lily writes urban fantasy as Mia Marshall, though those books have a lot less kissing.
These days, she lives in the Sierra Nevadas, where she gardens, knits, herds cats, and plans DIY projects she’s too lazy to complete.
