Courtney Milan lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, a marginally-trained dog, and an attack cat. Courtney wishes she could say she has lived in numerous fabulous places. But aside from her husband, there is a distinct lack of fabulousness in her life. Instead, she is happy when standards in the Milan household hover above mediocrity. Her husband attempts not to kill people for a living. In exchange, Courtney attempts not to do the dishes.
Before she started writing historical romance, Courtney experimented with various occupations: computer programming, dog-training, scientificating… Having given up on being able to do any of those things, she’s taken to heart the axiom that those who can’t do, teach. When she’s not reading (lots), writing (lots), or sleeping (not enough), she can be found in the vicinity of a classroom.

The astute reader will notice that this sentence can be read as either “Courtney’s husband attempts to make his living by means other than offing unsuspecting passersby,” or as “Courtney’s husband, while making a living, tries not to leave dead bodies in his wake.” Luckily, both are true. Although it must be admitted that Mr. Milan has had greater success with the former.
