A native Oregonian living in Oregon, Irene is a member of an endangered species. As a service brat, she lived in a number of cities throughout the country until returning to Oregon in time to graduate from Tigard High School. She earned a B.A. in history from Lewis and Clark College, where she met her husband. Historical research has remained a lifelong passion and finally became a part of her job with the historical fantasy series Merlin's Descendants. They currently make their home in Welches, Oregon where they share their back yard with deer, coyotes, bear, raccoons and too many bird species to mention. Irene has held many full and part time jobs from Insurance underwriter to assistant curator of a museum to clerk in a fabric store. Writing is now her "day job."
