Corrie Garrett . . . first fell in love with historical romances as a preteen during a long summer at her grandparents’ house, when she found a battered copy of a Georgette Heyer novel (Arabella!) and discovered … it was amazing. That led her to the original novels of manners from Jane Austen and Fanny Burney, and she spent many a skipped lunch (and class!) during high school reading through that particular section of the library. Unlike many, it didn’t occur to her to write a single story of her own until she was grown and married, and she is still making up for lost time.
Corrie lives with her husband and four kids in Los Angeles, California, where she splits her time between homeschooling, teaching, and writing. Her hobbies are mainly cooking (How do teenagers eat their weight in food every day?), reading romance and science fiction, and fawning over her neighbor’s cats when they come to visit.
