Original from Cleveland, Ohio, H. Quinn Bellwright was born in the era of disco music, for which she's yet to truly forgive her mother.

Recently returned from life in Northern California, she is a prolific writer with an impressive body of work penned largely under several alter-egos.

The Maker and the Monarch is the first installment of a multi-part series titled Brookes of Magic.

When not writing, which is almost never, H. Quinn is reading, taking pictures of things, drawing pictures of things and watching pictures of things flash by in rapid succession on screens and monitors.

She is supported in her madcap adventures by her co-conspirator M. Chenoweth Wright, her son The Spawn and their ridiculously cute four-legged family companion, Maximus Moriarty Bellwright, Superdog.
