MJ Kuhn is a fantasy writer by night and a mild-mannered university employee by day. She lives in the Metro Detroit area with her husband Ryan and a very spoiled cat named Thorin Oakenshield. She obtained a Bachelor's degree in Communication in 2013. Less than a year into her life as a full-time office-worker she began using her nights and lunch breaks to work on her first novel, and she hasn't looked back since. When she isn't reading or writing you can find Mallory playing the piano, weightlifting, or anxiously awaiting the next installment of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.
