A. L. Hartwell lives in Nottingham, England with her wonderfully patient husband and sassy dog Lyla. From the age of fifteen, as part of an escape, she spent years writing short stories, accumulating them and sharing them online. With a vast taste in genre’s, she found herself drawn to the wonderful twisty world of Dark Romance. When she discovered the freedom in writing within this genre, she delved headfirst into writing her first novel, Bending to Break.
When she’s not working or spending her time locked away in her writing cave, she’s reading, drinking tea or obsessing over her niece and nephew.
