Hetty Crane & P.J. Merchant
TaleS fRom TaiHanda
Hetty and P.J. met in literature classes in college and became instant friends, having the same taste in books, especially in the fantasy genre. Eventually discussing books turned into collaborating on stories of their own, and this practice continued well into their professional lives, though they lived at opposite ends of the country quite often, as circumstances dictated. Now they live close enough to share endless cups of tea on a weekly basis.
Hetty worked for many years in a bookstore in Canada, and most of her wages went on acquiring as many books as possible. She lives with her husband and three cats in a small Canadian city where winter never ends, thus affording her ample time for dreaming up stories. She loves long novels with rich character development, a preference that has carried over to her own work.
