Paris Hansen was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. She started telling stories at a young age, garnering invitations to writing conferences while in elementary school. Being an author was always her number one aspiration, but as a kid, she also thought being a lawyer or an actress might be cool. As a teenager, she realized she was far better behind the scenes than in front of a crowd and put all of her focus on being a writer. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in English from Washington State University in 2000.
When not writing, Paris devours as many books as she can get her hands on. After a long day at work, unwinding with a good book, a glass of wine and a decent TV show is her idea of a great evening.
She also loves cupcakes, sexy heroes and popcorn, but not always in that order.
