Taylor Fitzpatrick was born in Toronto, Ontario. She declared to her mother at the age of three that she was going to grow up to be an author/illustrator. The illustration thing didn’t really pan out. She is an avid hockey fan, though to her brother’s eternal consternation she did not become one until after he stopped playing competitively. She has a Honours degree in English Literature from the University of Toronto. She currently lives and works in Ottawa, Ontario.
Dan Riley didn't go into the NHL wanting to be the first out player, but things don't always go as planned. Dan is smart enough to know that, and smart enough to know falling in love with a teammate is a similarly terrible plan, but maybe not smart enough to avoid falling anyway.
