About me

Jordan Stoen has been writing since she could hold a crayon. Her interest in historical fiction was fed by both parents, who shared their books of adventures in the past. After college she worked as a staff editor and writer, then went freelance.

One is a Viking mystery and the other a time-travel collaboration with award-winning science fiction author Pat MacEwen.
