Before becoming a New York Times bestselling author, Kresley Cole was a world-ranked athlete, coach, and graduate student. While earning her Master's degree, she spent much of her time in the research library, gathering background information for what would eventually become award-winning historical and paranormal romances.
Since her first novel was published in 2003, Kresley has sold a total of fifteen books and two novellas and has seen her releases translated into over a dozen foreign languages. She has traveled over much of the world and draws from those experiences to create her memorable characters and settings. Two of her favorite places to visit include the rain forests of Central America and the Far North Queensland area of Australia (where, by the way, she would not recommend swimming outside of the shark and stinger nets--at night).
Cole’s trademark action, sensuality, and humor are best exemplified in her popular Immortals After Dark Series, which revolves around the Lore, a secret stratum of hundreds of immortal creatures--ranging from Vampires to Lykae, Furies to Shifters, and Fey to Valkyrie--that each have their strengths, weaknesses, and age old prejudices against the others. Though they secretly live among humans, they constantly war among themselves, which gives her a lot of material.
In 2007, Kresley won the prestigious Romance Writers of America RITA award for best paranormal for her novel A Hunger Like No Other, and in January 2009, she became a #1 New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller with her sixth IAD installment, Kiss of a Demon King.
She lives in Florida with her husband and far, far too many animals. She spends any free time traveling and enjoys all things related to boats and water. You can learn more about Kresley and her work in her Readers' Forum at www.kresleycole.com/forum.
