R. Huffman spent her formative years in Santa Ynez, a small valley north of Santa Barbara, California. She majored in History at a small Christian college and put her degree to minimal use in her following six years as a secretary in the Federal Government. Now living in Washington State with an elderly poodle and a remarkably furry cat, she has returned to her first true love: writing fantasy.
Ms. Huffman first discovered her gift for wordsmithing at a Fakespeare competition at her local library. Creating lines a blind panel found indistinguishable from Shakespeare gave her her first taste of authorial triumph--and she has never recovered.
