D. L. Torrent was born in Jamestown, New York and now resides in Spokane Valley, Washington. Inspired by wild beauty and her natural inclination to solitude, she enjoys writing fantasy fiction that often finds her protagonists facing untold dangers and overcoming severe obstacles. It is her hope that "this story will draw you away from reality and sink you deeply into a wonderful world of fantasy, allowing you to create a place in your mind and heart that only you can own."
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Ever? Well, actually, that would be when I was very young, third grade. perhaps. It was about a Dandylion...literally, a lion, but it was a flower. I even drew a picture of a dandylion where the center of the dandylion was a lion's face.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I don't think I realized at the time, but I think it gave me a drive to accomplish, not necessarily because I was asked to do well (in school for example), but I wanted to do well for me.
