BABS MOUNTJOY always dreamed of faraway worlds and interesting alien contacts. She lives as a post-modern hippie in Asheville, North Carolina, a single mother of her last child of seven, a daughter on the autism spectrum, finding that every day feels a lot like first contact with a new species.
She has published fourteen science fiction and fantasy novels as Lyndi Alexander, and seven romance and suspense novels as Alana Lorens, as well as having five stories in book-length anthologies, including two in the Cup of Comfort series. She is a former newspaper journalist, lawyer, floral designer and erstwhile pizza cook who currently volunteers with Project Linus, and Furever Friends, where she fosters kittens and cats in need. On Thursdays and Saturdays, she is also a proud member of the Fellowship of the Quill.
