Of The Princess and the Bear, she says, "I never thought there would be a sequel to The Princess and the Hound, but when I read through the galleys, I realized that there was another book waiting in the story of the bear and the hound. In some ways, you might think of it more as a parallel novel than as a sequel, because it stands on its own as a new story. But who knows? Maybe Ill look at these galleys and find another story demanding to be told."
She lives with her family in Utah.
“A well-told tale.”
“Well-written and intriguing. Harrison’s intelligence and love of language shine through.”
