S.M. Stryker grew up on a small farm in Oregon with her two brothers.
She married her husband 27 years ago. It was important to her to be able to stay at home to raise their four daughters.
She wasn't an avid reader, although she always thought her life would make a good book. A few years ago she picked up FSOG and The Crossfire Series and was drawn to the characters; the storylines moved her more than anything. Her life changed at that point, she could relate to the characters and what they had gone through. She devoured books after that, sometimes reading 8-10 books a week, and finding new authors she enjoyed reading. She couldn't be without a book, her IPad or IPhone anything that she could download her kindle app onto.
Knowing she had always wanted to write but kept putting it off, she emailed a few of her favourite authors that gave her some very good advice. So she finally went for it.
