With a bachelors in English: Creative Writing, and a Masters in Information and Library Science, Auden is a Dark Fantasy writer. "I can't help but be one and believe me, I've tried." It seems no matter how far you run, your passion always catches up with you. She didn't make the choice to be a writer, the stories made it for her. In fact, it started as a child when she created her own books by folding several construction papers in half and stapling them down the middle, adding her own illustrations to compliment. Dark Fantasy allows her to combine her two great loves- horror and fantasy. She has tried to write light or "normal" stories but you can't make the stories into something they don't want to be. Subtle creepy is beautiful.
