Prix Gautney lives on a small farm in southern Missouri with her daughter and son. She writes full-time and is an active member of the Mid South Writers group. In her spare moments, she enjoys gardening, photography, and “gofossarsquatching”—searching for gold, fossils, arrowheads, and Sasquatch. She became a writer because her only access to books as a child was through the Bookmobile that visited her school and the classroom Scholastic book catalogs. The lack of a library in her elementary school drove her to write her own stories, and she is currently working on the fourth novel in the Evershade series. She plans to write until she dies.
