Guest Post Monday (3): Andrea Cremer - Author of Nightshade

Guest Post Monday is a feature we started here at The Deranged Book Lovers where in we invite authors or bloggers to do a guest post with us.

For the first Monday of the new year *cue fireworks*, we have Andrea Cremer, the author of Nightshade, to tell us something about her life before and after getting published.

My 'day job' is as a history professor at Macalester College in St. Paul. I love teaching and my research is on the intersection of gender, religion, and violence in the ealry modern Atlantic world (1500-1800). I'd always loved writing, but I didn't think it was something you could do for a 'real job.' In the summer of 2008, I was in a horseback riding accident that left me on crutches for twelve weeks. Since I could do anything other than sit on the couch I decided to try something I'd always dreamed of: writing a novel. Once I started writing I couldn't stop and I knew I wanted more than anything else to become an author.

I'm still teaching at Macalester and writing Nightshade has taught me that I'm able to bring my two passions, history and fantasy, together in my novels.
