It was a finalist for both the International Book Awards and the Indie Excellence Awards. Both graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and after working together as stunt performers for a Hollywood sword fighting team, co-writing a comedy webseries, and starting their own business as Public Relations Copywriters, they conjoined their mutual love of sweeping historical dramas and intimate, character-driven stories to create the fictional world of Eden, Mississippi.
