Jamie Kain grew up in Louisville, Kentucky and has since lived all over the US and Germany. She now calls Northern California her permanent home, where she lives with her husband, three children, and a pit bull mix named Reno who is her devoted writing partner. There are also a cat and two rabbits hanging around, but they have no discernible interest in literature. Jamie has worked as a teacher, a restaurant hostess, a sweater-folding clothing store clerk, a technical sales rep, and as a telemarketer for two short, painful weeks long ago. Writing is her favorite gig by far. She is at work on her next novel, so check out http;//jamiekain.com for more information on her books.
