About the author

Piper Bayard

Piper Bayard is an author and a recovering attorney with a college degree or two. She's also a belly dancer and a former hospice volunteer. She is currently an instructor for WANA International and has been a featured contributor at the Social In network. In addition to Firelands, she pens spy thrillers and nonfiction espionage books with her writing partner, Jay Holmes.

Jay Holmes is a veteran field intelligence operative with experience spanning from the Cold War fight against the Soviets, the East Germans, and the various terrorist organizations they sponsored to the present Global War on Terror. He is still a senior member of the Intelligence Community. Piper is the public face of their partnership. Together, Bayard & Holmes are the bestselling authors of The Spy Bride from the Risky Brides Bestsellers Collection.

When they aren’t writing or, in Jay’s case, busy with “other work,” Piper and Jay are enjoying time with their families, hiking, exploring back roads of America, talking foreign affairs, laughing at their own rude jokes until the wee hours, and questing for the perfect chocolate cake recipe. If you think you have that recipe, please share it with them at
