R. A. Steffan began writing for pleasure in 2005. After honing her skills for a few years in amateur circles, she eventually transitioned into freelance nonfiction writing and ghostwriting professionally published short fiction.
The Queen’s Musketeers series marked her first foray into both serialized stories and novel-length works. The Horse Mistress series arose from a desire to write something focused more on the developing relationships of the characters. She has found the experience of wrangling more extended and intricate plot lines–along with a larger cast of characters–to be educational, frustrating, and fulfilling by turns. With luck, the end result will prove to be an enjoyable experience for readers.
When not writing, the author enjoys reading, horseback riding, walking her dogs, and raising a small backyard flock of ducks.
