R.F. Long always had a thing for fantasy, romance and ancient mysteries. The combination was bound to cause trouble. In university she studied English Literature, History of Religions and Celtic Civilisation, which just compounded the problem. Her short story The Lost Rose, published in Haruah, was a Top 10 finalist in the 2007 Preditors and Editors Awards in the mainstream fiction category. Elements, a historical fantasy, appeared in Flashing Swords' 2008 Summer Special. Carrying Keptara is also currently available in the Hadley Rille Books Anthology Ruins Metropolis. The Wrecker's Daughter appears in the Fall 2008 issue of Ocean Magazine. Her Holtlands Novella The Wolf's Sister: a Tale of the Holtlands and her novels The Scroll Thief: a Tale of Ithian and the paranormal romance novel Soul Fire are now available from Samhain Publishing. The Wolf's Mate, sequel to The Wolf's Sister is due out in January 2010. The Scroll Thief came out in print on 1st December 2009, and Soul Fire will follow suit in May 2010. She lives in Wicklow, the Garden County of Ireland, and works in a specialised library of rare and unusual books. But they don't talk to her that often.
