About Shae

One may think someone sporting Tolkien and Star Wars tattoos would dive into the world of fantasy, but this history nerd began with one and moved to the other. After discovering her family history, she sat to write The Tin Photo and The Appalachian Roots series was born. Is She Home? will be the next installment in the series, followed by Marriage and Moonshine. When she isn't busy reading historical fiction or enjoying some metal, Shae is probably playing an RPG or hiking near her home in Denver, Colorado.
