Fascinated with history and the medieval era, Shantal's stories alway include action/adventure, political intrigue, plenty of romantic tension and great kissing scenes. She grew up climbing trees, riding bikes, roller skating, and playing on the beaches of Southern California. Once the family moved to Utah, she paid her way through college while modeling and acting. She loves reading and writing so much that she earned an M.A. in English and has been developing stories ever since. She still lives in glorious, beautiful Utah with her husband. Her two sons had the audacity to grow up;) Her oldest son even got married, but she delights in her amazing new daughter-in-law. Shantal enjoys being outside in her garden, hiking, boating, traveling, skiing, volunteering, and hanging out with her kids. She'll come inside to bake, mostly cookies, but anything will do as long as there is chocolate.
