Award-winning paranormal romance author Vivi Andrews was born and raised in Alaska and still lives in the frozen north when she isn't indulging her travel addiction. After graduating from Northwestern University, Vivi tried out a variety of careers—from the movie industry to accounting—but kept coming back to her first two loves, writing and travel. She lived in nine cities (on two continents and one tropical island) while pursuing her dream of writing romance professionally.
In 2009, Vivi won the Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart Award, quit her last day job, and her first two paranormal romance novellas were released by Samhain Publishing, launching the Karmic Consultants and Serengeti Shifter series respectively. In the years since she has written and released over twenty paranormal romance novels and novellas. Her books have been selected as Top Picks by Romantic Times Bookreviews and nominated for their Reviewer's Choice Awards, as well as other awards.
When she isn't writing, Vivi enjoys reading, hiking, skiing, and watching every movie ever released, though she is most often found traveling or planning her next trip. Whether at home or on the road, she is always hard at work on her next happily-ever-after.
