About the author

Kathlena L. Contreras

<p>I've been writing pretty much forever. I wrote my first fantastic fiction, a story about a saber toothed tiger that encounters a time machine, at the age of 8. The story was three paragraphs long and was told from the point of view of the saber toothed tiger. <br><br>​​​​​​​Many hundreds of thousands of words later, and here I am, still writing about weird things. I have a thing for dark lords, dark heroes and antiheroes. I tend to root for villains, because they're usually a lot more interesting than heroes. But they have to be nuanced villains, not totally evil. I love variations on the Beauty and the Beast story, awkward courtships and slow-burn romances. Think "Pride and Prejudice," not 50 Shades. It's all about the relationship! <br><br>​​​​​​​ I live with my husband, dogs and assorted livestock above the valley at the edge of the woods east of Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, a place where the view goes on forever.<br>​​​​​​​<br></p><p>I also write&nbsp;as K.
