Much like a secret agent, Jalena Burke leads a double life. One as a romance writer, the other as a legal assistant. Though she works full time to pay her bills, writing has always been her passion. She shares her other passions with her husband of 12 years. They include kayaking, travel, outdoor adventures, crafting, reading, movies, her family, and Riley, their cat. She was born and raised in Texas, and Texas is where she'll stay, as long as she can write.
