According to the article "Dragon Lady - Lindsey Piper Introduces the Dragon Kings and Keeps Herself Under Wraps" Lindsey is the alter ego of a historical and contemporary author.

# 1 - Anyone have an idea of who she may be? I only know of one author who has a deep interest and respect for MMA cage fighters - I wonder if it could be her?

#2 - Are there any readers out there who wouldn't follow a favorite author from one genre to another?

Well - MISSION accomplished! I'm now very intrigued .... Who could it be?? And the Dragon Kings look like very good stories! Off to find the first book!!

Hi Debby,

An interesting question. My first thought was Mary Jo Putney... but looked her up and she's living in Baltimore, Maryland apparently, still.

I might have said Lori Foster going by the "fighter" reference but don't think she's ever written any historical romances. And no idea where she lives either.

As for following favorite authors to another genre, I haven't really wanted to read anything contemporary by Jodi Thomas or Jo Goodman, and have only read one short book by Lisa Kleypas. So, I can never say never about that, but it has happened that I don't follow along with the author making the change.

Hope somebody knows more Chicago authors to think about. I'll be checking back to see who comes up.

--Janie

Lori Foster lives in the Cincinnati area. The MMA reference made me think of her too.

Hey Danielle,

I thought of SEP also after I posted but that only one historical was co-written with a friend so I hardly count it when I think of award-winning historical and contemporary author. Maybe if the "award-winning" went in front of the contemporary reference.

Went to the Copyright site but they have no one on record for Lindsey Piper yet, and probably won't show a real name anyway.

I did a search on Elizabeth Hoyt and that's the only name that showed up with those books. Why is everything so hard. (LOL)

Hi Janie!

I went over by Fantastic Fiction and Julia Harper is an AKA for Elizabeth Hoyt.

http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/h/julia-harper/

She only wrote two books under that name.

Hot and For the Love of Pete!

I just guessing on her because she lives south of Chicago.

RITA-nominated author Carrie Lofty writes for five publishers, under four names, in three genres. Summer 2013 marks her debut as paranormal author Lindsey Piper, also through Pocket. “The Dragon Kings” trilogy, described as “blistering and brutal,” begins with CAGED WARRIOR, followed by BLOOD WARRIOR.

from RWA.org
