Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic--an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five--Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt--featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular. Tanya can be found via Twitter at @TanyaHuff.
Praise for the Confederation series: "The action is solid, and the marines are an entertaining mix of oddballs led by the highly competent and eminently likeable Staff Sergeant Kerr.... A rousing military adventure." --Locus "An intriguing alien race, a likeable protagonist, a fast moving plot, and a rousing ending. What more could you ask for?" --S.F. Chronicle "The notable Tanya Huff proves herself equally adept at military science fiction as contemporary fantasy. A writer of great versatility, Ms. Huff captures the ambiance of an elite military group and adds a rare depth to skillful characterization to make each personality stand up and be counted." --RT Reviews "This book is Rendezvous with Rama for the rest of us: exciting, mysterious and full of action and puzzles to solve. Torin is everything you want in an action heroine." --Kliatt "Readers who enjoy military SF will love Tanya Huff's Valor's Choice. The level of detail is intricate...the blow-by-blow of combat is delivered with a focus on character as well as with lots of empathy and humor. Howlingly funny and very suspenseful." --Science Fiction Weekly "Fans of military science fiction will want to read The Better Part of Valor, a thriller that is every bit as exciting as Star Wars. Torin is a great heroine, while the realistic species provide an authentic spin to this vigorous fantastic futuristic tale." --Midwest Book Review "Sergeant Torin Kerr is a great character - gutsy, capable, and kick-ass. Everything a reader could hope for.... The series maintains its quality and addictiveness...there's a great balance of humour, story, and action." --Civilian Reader
