Karen Marie Moning
Moning, the bestseller of two different seriesí was born in
Cincinnati, Ohio. After high school she enrolled at Purdue University
and graduate with a degree in Society and Law. For one reason or
another, her education didnít seem to steer her towards the real calling
she had in life, which was to be a writer.
Moningís first series, The Highlander Series, is a paranormal romance
set in medieval Scotland. While writing this series, Moning became quite
interested in the Celtic Myths of the Fae. She was fascinated by all of
the stories that she read, and after the Highlander series she would go
on to write the Fever series where she created a fictional race of
immortal beings called Tuatha De Danann.
The Highlander series worked out to describe the setting of the
fictional world that her stories took place. It was this setting that
made the backdrop for all of the Fever series books.
The Fever series starts with the main character MacKayla Lane. Her
sister is murdered while on a trip to Dublin, and MacKayla decides that
she is going to go to Dublin and find the person or persons who killed
her sister. The research on the Fae that she did with the Highlander
series is the mainstay of these books. There are Faerie in Dublin, and
all over Ireland; however they are not as nice as and more powerful than
she ever thought possible.
Moning is currently at work, writing a graphic novel for Del Rey,
featuring some of her characters from her novels.
