Temple West was born in Phoenix, raised in Seattle and educated in LA. She has a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Cinematic Production. She likes to describe herself as a nerdster (seventy per cent nerd, thirty per cent blue-haired hipster) and spends too much time on Twitter, where she mostly reposts Doctor Who and Firefly crossover memes while writing punny things about being a YA paranormal romance author/hermit. Her debut novel, Velvet, a heartstopping vampire romance, was selected to be part of the Swoon Reads imprint. Temple currently lives in Seattle, USA.

Sorry I've MIA for a while guys, the past month has been crazy. While you're waiting on book 3 of the Velvet Trilogy, you should check out Danika Stone's new book, Internet Famous. I adore her and her writing and her creativity (she's making a Wonder Woman costume from scratch and documenting it on Instagram). If you need a new book, check her out!
