Shae Bryant is the author of "The Veiled Monarch" urban fantasy series and the upcoming "Varial" fantasy series. Sporting a side shave, multiple tattoos and facial piercings, Shae seems at home with her motorcycle and power metal. She is also a history buff, RPG player and kickboxer.
Shae started writing at the age of eight years old. It's a good thing no one else saw that book except her parents. She proudly displays a tattoo of the White Tree of Gondor with Aslan in front it. That makes it pretty obvious who inspired her.
After living in Nashville for 14 years, Shae is preparing to call Denver, Colorado "home".
