Who Is Mistral Dawn?

She currently resides in the Southeast US with her kitty cats (please spay or neuter! :-)) where she works as a hospital drudge and attends graduate school. Taken By The Huntsman is her first effort at writing fiction and if it is well received she has ideas for several more novels and short-stories in this series.

The questions Jade asked me, and their answers, are here!

Nope. I know absolutely nothing about sports. :-)

6.  What is song is guaranteed to get you up and dancing?

Again, this is a very long list. I like pop, rock, country, bluegrass, jazz, alternative, swing, etc, etc.  Basically, if it's got a beat I'll dance to it...badly. ;-)
