Shantal writes sweet/historical romance (usually medieval-era) that always includes action/adventure, political intrigue, plenty of romantic tension and great kissing scenes. She loves reading and writing so much that she earned an M.A. in English and has been developing stories ever since. She lives in glorious, beautiful Utah with her husband. Her two sons had the audacity to grow up. Her oldest son even got married, but she delights in her new daughter-in-law. Shantal enjoys being outside in her garden, hiking, boating, traveling, skiing, volunteering, and hanging out with her kids. She'll come inside to bake, mostly cookies, but anything will do as long as there is chocolate.
