SHAYLIN GANDHI secretly stole her mother’s copy of Clan of the Cave Bear at age 10 and fell madly in love with love stories. Now, as an author, she still can't get enough, and the tales she spins all center around affairs of the heart.
Besides writing, she travels at every opportunity. Shaylin and her husband once spent a summer living in their van, touring the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia, and Alaska. Her most memorable trips often tie in with writing: her books are usually inspired by majestic places that stole her breath.
In addition, Shaylin practices medicine, scuba dives, plays the piano, and once rode her bicycle from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic. She now lives in Denver with her incredible husband, their identical twin daughters, and two adorable rescue dogs. The family can usually be found in the mountains, either hiking up or skiing down.
