Biography:

Alis Rasmussen grew up outside the thriving metropolis of Junction City, Oregon (population 2,500). No doubt the wholesome country environment led her to the joys of lurid adventure fiction. After reading The Lord of the Rings in eighth grade, she never looked back. She wrote her first novel in high school and went on to write four more before her 'first' novel, The Labyrinth Gate, was published in 1988. A graduate of Mills College, in Oakland, California, Rasmussen worked at the BBC in London and at Keyboard Magazine in Cupertino, California, before becoming a full-time writer. She holds a brown belt in Shotokan karate and has experience in medieval broadsword fighting (from which she can truly say that she met her husband in a sword fight). Together with her husband Jay Silverstein, an archaeologist specializing in Mesoamerica, Rasmussen has traveled in Europe and across the United States. With their three children they have lived in Mexico, where they investigated ancient Mesoamerican cities as well as modern Mexican ones, and in Denmark, where they investigated the pastry. Currently they live in Hawaii, together with a chameleon and a furry schnauzer dog (sometimes called 'the Schnazgul').
