Stephanie A. Cain
BioStephanie A. Cain writes epic & urban fantasy. She is the author of Shades of Circle City, The Midwinter Royal, Stormsinger, Stormshadow, Stormseer, and Sow the Wind. She is a lifelong resident of Indiana, but dreams of living somewhere without winter.
Stephanie graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Arts in History and Creative Writing and a Medieval Studies minor. She also has two-thirds of a Master of Library Science, but ran out of money and enthusiasm for grad school at about the same time. Despite this, her years in libraries were not wasted--besides having a lot of librarian friends, she also spent a great deal of time hanging out in the stacks at 398.2, which inspired many of her urban fantasy stories.
She currently works at the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum, where she spends her time doing historical research, giving tours of a Victorian man-cave, and serving as a one-woman IT department. She hopes to be the first of her coworkers to actually read Ben-Hur.
A proud crazy cat lady, Stephanie is happily owned by Eowyn, Strider, and Eustace Clarence Scrubb. In her free time, she enjoys hiking (except for the spiders), bird-watching, and visiting wineries. She unwinds by playing World of Warcraft and Skyrim. She owns way more movie scores and fountain pens than she can actually afford.
