Courtney Privett

Biography

Courtney Privett was born in Detroit in 1982 and raised in northeastern Michigan. She relocated to Missouri to obtain a degree in Ceramic Engineering, and now resides in Kansas with her husband, two children, and two disobedient cats. She is a former analytical chemist and a current percussionist for several community groups.

Courtney wrote her first book, a fantasy adventure which has morphed into the second book of an upcoming trilogy, while still in college as a diversion from differential equations and has been obsessed ever since. She wrote the first draft of the Echoes of Oblivion trilogy in six months while working a temporary job in insurance. Echoes of Oblivion was quickly followed by Mayfly Requiem, which was written by hand over many late nights. She published her fifth book, Shadows of Absolution, in July 2012.

Courtney has many interests and nearly all of them have been brought into her books. In addition to being a classically trained musician and an engineer by training, she is an avid crafter, a former hockey and soccer player, a vegan baker, an occasional world traveler, a confirmed narcoleptic, and an outdoor enthusiast. Before she was known as "Mommy", she was an exchange student to Japan, a classic rock radio deejay, and a Kappa Kappa Psi brother.
