authorphoto2015H. A. Titus is usually found with her nose in a book or spinning story-worlds in her head. Her love affair with fantasy began at age twelve, when her dad handed her The Lord of the Rings after listening to it on tape during a family vacation.

Nowadays, she devours good storytelling wherever she can find it…from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Voltron, to Mistborn and Harry Potter, and many worlds in between. She’s an avid Dungeons and Dragons player, gaming weekly with a group of writer friends. Bookstagramming is a new passion, and few things make her happier than being able to recommend wonderful books to people she meets.

Her short stories have been published in multiple magazines and anthologies, and her short story Dragon Dance won Honorable Mention in the December 2013 Writers of the Future contest.

Her first novel, Forged Steel, is the first in an urban fantasy series based heavily in Celtic mythology. Currently, she is running a serialized novella series, The Winguard Chronicles, in her monthly newsletter, and working on the second urban fantasy book, Burnt Silver.

She lives on the shores of Lake Superior with her meteorologist husband and young sons, who do their best to ensure she occasionally emerges into the real world, usually for some kind of adventure. When she’s not doing geek things, she can be found rock-climbing, mountain biking, or skiing.
