Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband and a small, bossy dog named Scotty. Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE (New Zealand speak for big overseas experience) soon after they married, and spent six years of roaming the world. Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub. These days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby, being walked by the dog, and curling up with a good book.
