About the Author

Rebecca Hahn grew up in Iowa, attended college in Minnesota, and then moved to New York City, where she worked in book publishing and wrote her debut novel, A Creature of Moonlight. She now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with the winter cold, the wide sky, and many whispering trees.

"The fairy-tale world in A Creature of Moonlight is richly woven, laced with such delicate details that when you close your eyes it's impossible not to see the thin blue dragon flowers or hear the whispering leaves beckoning you into the thicket. This story engages every sense, and burrows into your imagination."--New York Times Book Review
