About the Author
Being an only child, P.J. Ralls has always had quite the imagination. There was little technology when she was growing up, so she would spend her time reading and writing. Ralls has always had a love for animals and has been fortunate to rescue three wonderful dogs. At one time, she and her husband rescued a partially blind and deaf ten-week-old pit bull, who will now be turning four this year.

Ralls works a lot and life moves very fast for her these days. But she always finds time to curl up with some good fiction on a stormy or snowy day.
