Eileen Wilks is the NYT best-selling author of over thirty books and novellas, including her World of the Lupi series. A multiple RITA finalist and recipient of a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award, sheâ€™s currently hard at work on the eleventh book in the series, which is currently unnamed. Eileen came to writing the usual way: by reading compulsively and daydreaming a lot. She likes quilting, dark matter, chocolate, books on brain science, yoga (even though she's not good at it), and painting thingsâ€”walls, boxes, furniture, floors, even canvases sometimes . . . but not the cats. The cats do not wish to be painted.
