Born in England, G.L. Cromarty grew up exploring castles and watching Star Wars. As a voracious reader, she has been heavily influenced by a wide variety of writers ranging from Tolkien to George R.R. Martin and Anne McCaffrey, and Harry Harrison to Isaac Asimov. Now living in Perth, Western Australia with her husband and two oddball cats, she spends her spare time writing. Divided Serenity is her debut novel.
