About the Author

Jane Rosenthal studied creative writing at San Francisco State University. She worked for NPR and California Public Radio before teaching radio production and English in public high schools in Oakland, California. For fifteen years, before relocating to Santa Fe, New Mexico, Jane lived on a ranch in the Sierra mountains complete with horses and cattle, fulfilling her dream of being a western cowgirl. Now, she can be found exploring the many cultural offerings of her new home in New Mexico or traveling to her favorite pueblos mágicos in old Mexico when she's not in her office with a window overlooking the Georgia O'Keeffe landscape around her and writing those novels that have been kicking around in her head all these many years.
