About the Author

Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic--an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent "Smoke novels." Of her previous twenty-three books, the five--"Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt"--featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular. Tanya can be contacted via her website,
