Greetings, fellow reader! My name is K.C. Dunford. I am a YA fantasy author and lifetime lover of books. I grew up in Arizona, but despite what you may think, I am not from the desert. In fact, I am from a tiny town called Snowflake, Arizona. Yes, you heard right, and no, it's not an oxymoron! My quaint little hometown is high up in the mountains in a simple haven where we don't bat an eye at the snow or rivers of rainfall. Now, as you can imagine, growing up in a town where the population is almost lower than the elevation, children are practically forced to use their imagination. I was no exception, and to tell you the truth, I wouldn't have had it any other way. I haven't a doubt that I owe my creative mind and love of story building to those good ole boring Arizona White Mountains. Hardly a day of my childhood went by without me conjuring up some adventurous plot line or magical mystery. Writing has always been the gateway to bringing these fantasies to life. Ever since I was a little girl, I have known that I wanted to be an author. My passion for the written word runs deep. You could even go as far as to say that the desire to write is etched into my bones. As you may know, I recently published my first fantasy novel, Lost Illumination. It is the first in a trilogy as well as the first of many, many books to come. Whether your love for literature stems from reading the stories of others or fabricating adventures of your own, I hope that my writing will lift and inspire you to continue. Best wishes and happy reading!
