L. A. Clayton
According to the bio on Amazon: "L.A. Clayton has been an avid reader her entire life, devouring books at an alarming rate. Her husband often jokes that if she didn't buy so many books they could retire. She went to bed one night a reader and woke up with a fresh memory of a dream she'd had the night before, sat down and became a writer.
L.A. Clayton lives in St. Louis, MO with her husband and their four young children. She makes time for writing in between wiping noses and packing lunches."
