Cheryse Durrant grew up on an Australian cattle property where she invented stories about scrub faeries and imaginary superheroes.
She wrote her first prose on her aunt's bedroom wall at the age of five but it did not attract the literary acclaim she deserved.
She has since worked a variety of jobs, from barmaid and dental receptionist to journalist and tutor.
The Blood She Betrayed is the first book in her YA Urban Fantasy Heart Hunter series.
A caffeine and Twitter addict, Cheryse lives at Bargara and shares her love of writing and spec fic at:
