Established fantasy authors Jacqueline Silvester and N J Simmonds joined forces in 2019 when they learned readers were looking for steamy paranormal stories with more diversity, more sass, and set outside of the US.
Between them, they have lived in ten countries and speak six languages fluently - all of which inspired them to create a fantasy world hidden among our own. The cities featured in the series are cities they have lived in (except for Lapland).
Jacqueline Silvester is of Russian/ Ukrainian descent and now lives between Berlin and The Netherlands. She works as a screenwriter and producer and has collaborated with large names such as Netflix, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon.
