Lauren Esker writes romantic suspense and paranormal romance that's just a little off the beaten path. Which isn't surprising since she's a lifelong Alaskan who is a little off the beaten path herself! (Literally and figuratively.) She lives with her husband and pets on the highway in a former gold-mining district, not far from Fairbanks, Alaska's second-largest city. She also enjoys reading, hiking, gardening, and painting. In the past she managed the layout department at the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (the local paper) and taught at the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival. She now writes full time.
