Verity A. Buchanan is the daughter of an Orthodox Presbyterian pastor and the oldest of eight children. Born in South Carolina, she moved to rural northern Michigan at age eight, where her only complaint is that there are no mountains. She makes up for this deficiency by scattering them liberally throughout her stories. Verity enjoys long walks, playing piano, and coming up with creative ways to describe light. She has completed an entirety of four books and two novellas set in Legea.
