Lauren Munoz Maccann

Catherine Jones Payne is the author of many fantasy books, including Breakwater, Fire Dancer, and The Singing Serpent. Her earliest memory involves pulling up a rolling chair to her parents’ old DOS computer and tapping out a story of kidnapped princesses—while wearing a tiara. By day she’s the executive editor of Quill Pen Editorial and drinks entirely too much coffee. She lives in Greenville, SC with her historian husband, Brendan, and their cats, Mildred, Minerva, and Moo.
