T. L. Haddix grew up in Perry County, Kentucky, and graduated from C. Dilce Combs High School there. This is the third edition of this book which, in 2012 began the Firefly Hollow series. It has been followed by nine other books in this series. She also has written eight books in the Shadow Collection and two more under the Mallory Love pseudonym. This series is how she has chosen to illuminate the supernatural stories she was raised with. It is set in Eastern Kentucky in the 1960s. She wants readers to know that it is at heart a romance and is not "a typical paranormal romance."
