Ainsley Drake lives in Upstate California, where the Shasta Cascade is her playground. When she isn’t writing about kick-ass warriors, Ainsley climbs volcanoes, chases waterfalls, and hunts for wildflowers. She married the love of her life when she was still a teenager, and they’ve enjoyed a child-free happily-ever-after ever since. Her bucket list includes hiking to the top of Lassen Peak, seeing a Roseate Spoonbill with her very own eyes, and visiting every National Wildlife Refuge in the United States.
