Mande Matthews is the author of the ShadowLight Saga. While attending a performing arts college for writing and arranging, Mande discovered Joseph Cambell's Masks of God series. Her desire to understand humanity through myth and legend mingled with her love of fantasy fiction, birthing her life-long quest to create original new worlds for readers. A hermit at heart, Mande recedes into the realms of imagination where she occasionally surfaces to face the real world aided by her minions: a husband who plays the dog drum (the belly of their border collie), and a menagerie of furred, feathered and mostly magical friends.

What can I say? Mande Matthews is a beautiful, brilliant and imaginative fantasy author! Her wordplay and characters are awesome. Her talent is practically off the charts, and I have nothing but the utmost respect for this woman and her amazing writing. If you like fantasy, give her work a try. I can just about guarantee that you will like it. I am glad that I read this free prequel first, as it has gotten me excited to purchase and read the series to which it is attached.
