Sara Caudell grew up in a small ranching community in Colorado where she learned to judge beef on the hoof and under wrap.  After moving around the country for her husband’s career and catching college courses as she could, she finally found herself in one place long enough to finish her degree. She was an artist, raised three children, managed offices, and started her own business before weaving her stories and experiences into novels. She now lives in central Texas with her patient husband and four cats.  In her spare time she does genealogy and historical research and nurses orphan kittens back to health for the local animal shelter.
