A few excruciating minutes pinned in a burning building cost Ryan Ward his job as a firefighter, the easy camaraderie of his coworkers, his girlfriend, and damn near cost him his left leg.

Kaje Harper grew up in Montreal and spent her teen years writing stories about what guys like Starsky and Hutch really did on their days off. Serious authorship got sidetracked by ventures into psychology, teaching, a biomedical career, and the challenges of raising children. When Kaje took up writing again it was just for fun. Hours of fun. Lots of hours of fun. The stories began piling up, and her husband suggested it was time to try to publish. Kaje currently lives in Minnesota with a creative teenager, a crazy little omnivorous white dog, and a remarkably patient spouse. Visit her at her website: www.louharper.com
