Biographical Notes

Laurelin Paige is the New York Times bestselling author of the Fixed Trilogy. She loves a good romance and gets giddy anytime there's kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. When she isn't reading or writing sexy stories, she's probably singing or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International, although she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.
