the Author

live in Ohio and I write urban fantasy. Laken Cane is a new pseudonym for me--I also write erotic paranormal romance for publishers like Loose Id, Ellora's Cave,and Liquid Silver Books under a different pen name.Shiv Crew is my first book as Laken, and I've never been as satisfied
writing as I am with this series. I have a sort of end game planned for the crew, but I have
no idea how many books it will take to get there. I'm having too much fun with
them to think about ending them! 
do have plans to bring in a new character for one book, just so she can eventually get her own series when (or maybe before) the Rune Alexander series ends. That's the plan.

Besides writing--when I have time to do something other than write or read--I Play the
heck out of my Playstation 4, my Nintendo 3DS XL, and occasionally I find time to play my Xbox 360 or Wii U. Yes. I have a sickness. 
also drink coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. But I have been trying to dilute all that coffee with some green tea. Decaf green tea. That makes up for all the caffeinated black coffee, right? Yeah. That's what I thought.What quirks do have? Hmmm. The word "quirks" makes it sound so cute. I don't swallow pills. I chew them. Yes, I chew them. Tylenol, vitamins, doesn't matter. Even if I crush it and put it in ice cream first, I still chew. I chew ice cream. For some reason, people seem to think that's weird. I don't get it.One of my favorite authors is Stephen King. That man can tell a story.I'm
obsessed with vanilla bean lotion from Bath and Body Works, journals, electric
blankets, and ink pens. And electronics, coffee, and books. And pizza. And any candy that has peanut butter in it.

I'm something of a hermit, but I don't feel that makes me weird. I don't like the
sun on my face and I can't stand the scent of garlic. Maybe I'm part vampire. Maybe. Quirky. Just quirky. Math and bugs are two things I don't like. At all. I always have a
calculator handy and I scream when I see bugs. I've been known to set off the security
alarm when I spotted a spricket in my house. Shudder. 
little about my past: I grew up in the country with six siblings. We went to church. A lot. Pentecostal. There were nightly episodes of speaking in tongues, singing and dancing, and the casting out of demons. As a child, I wasn't real sure if those demons were going to leave their hosts and set up
residence inside me, so that made for plenty of nightmares! We had no TV for much of my childhood. Books were everything to me. I was only allowed certain books, so the others--the good ones--I had to sneak and read. I did a lot of sneaking! I read everything I could get my hands on. Didn't matter what it was, I'd read it. I was not a fan of school. When was very small, my main goal was to grow up and eat all the ice cream sandwiches and potato chips I could hold. Then grew up and decided they had too many calories. Sigh. was lucky enough to be a mother to two truly amazing children, a son and a daughter. My little girl was born with a variety of severe health issues, and on a bleak December day in 2009, I lost her. write. Little things--I'm lefty. I'm a pretty terrible driver--possibly because I get lost in daydreams and stories and forget I'm driving. I'm very short. I can't sleep without a fan.
