T.L. Haddix was born in Hazard, Kentucky, a small town in the center of the Appalachian coal fields. Taught to read by her grandmother, T.L. has had a life-long love affair with books, devouring whatever she could get her hands on. From childhood favorites such as the Trixie Belden series and Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House” books, to her current favorites from authors like Tami Hoag, Alex Kava, J.A. Jance and Lisa Kleypas (among many others), T.L. still finds refuge in the written word.
“Growing up, I wanted to be everything – astronaut, police officer, doctor, teacher, reporter, psychologist – there was no clear choice for me. I wanted to do it all. Becoming a writer has allowed me to do just that, because I can live vicariously through my characters.”
A resident of southern Indiana, T.L. is hard at work on her next book, when she isn’t chasing after her three cat-children with her husband.

Living in the shadow of evil affects us all. And she tells us through the lives of her people that even the best of us are scarred. Even those who fight evil are touched by it and can never be the same.
The true mark of a good book is that reading it makes you want to read more. I was about fifty pages into this better than three hundred page book and I was already wanting the next one.” – Jesse D. Wright
“I’m enjoying this author so much it seems five stars isn’t nearly enough. Great thriller and suspense aspects and of course the romance is sigh worthy. I love a book that stays with you after you finish it and this is one which does.” – K.C Quinn

What Other’s Are Saying About Firefly Hallow
“Bravo! Part way through this novel I had to pause to contact the author (which I rarely do) to let her know just how much I was loving it! So, what exactly turned me into a fan girl? Being an enthusiast of southern culture, I naturally gravitated to Haddix’s desire to preserve and pass along Appalachian lore. What is unique in the telling of Firefly Hollow is it is first and foremost a historical romance, which happens to include paranormal elements.” – Bitsy Bling Books
“I fell in love with this author’s Leroy Indiana series and this book was totally different. The author kept me entertained throughout and the love story was so sweet! She really got me involved with the inner thoughts of the characters. It is a really great read and hopefully she will continue to write more of her stories of romance.” – Linda
“I felt butterflies when Sarah did and I was anxious and angry when Owen was. T.L. Haddix takes you on a journey that makes it extremely difficult to put down. Cannot WAIT for the sequel!!” – Kendra
