About Barb Hendee
Like most writers, I've worked at many jobs in my life, including teaching pre-school until I completed my master's degree in Composition Theory. Between 1993 and 2006, I taught college English while writing fiction on the side, some independently and some with my husband and life-long partner J.C.
Over the years, we've lived in Washington State, Idaho, Colorado, and now south of Portland, Oregon. I love the Northwest, and it's a great place to write.
We have a lovely and talented daughter, Jaclyn, who lives in Houston, Texas along with our wonderful and talented son-in-law, Paul, and our adorable granddaughter, Harper.
J.C. and I sold Dhampir in 2001, which changed our lives considerably. It was published in January 2003. In May of 2006, we were both able to quit our teaching jobs and move into full time writing. We've published a book in the Noble Dead Saga every year since upto 2016 and the final (14th) volume, The Night Voice. [See either my “Books” or NobleDead.org.]
In 2008, I sold the idea for the Vampire Memories series to our editor, Susan Allison, at Roc Books. I am so glad our books have found an audience because I love to write fiction more than anything else in the world... and I'm not really good at anything else.
