Mande MatthewsMande Matthews is the #1 international bestselling author of the ShadowLight Saga and the mini-series Queen’s Honor and an award-winning artist. While attending a performing arts college for writing and arranging, Mande discovered Joseph Cambell’s Masks of God series. Her desire to understand humanity through myth and legend mingled with her love of fantasy fiction, birthing her life-long quest to create original new worlds for readers. A hermit at heart, Mande recedes into the realms of imagination where she occasionally surfaces to face the real world aided by her minions: a husband who plays the dog drum (the belly of their border collie), and a menagerie of furred, feathered and mostly magical friends.
