Shrouded in mystery, Steele's past is a puzzle with missing pieces
From Ms. Steele's Publicist
Welcome to Ms. Steele's information page, if you could call it that. One of the services I perform for her is to update her biography from time to time. Luckily this is my responsibility, because if CS had her way it would involve military-grade explosives, chases and lots of steamy sex scenes (like in her books). When I pointed that out she said, "And that's a problem... why?"
Writing a biography for CS is a challenging assignment as she is closemouthed about her years before she became an author. To celebrate the Veritas Series, I tried a new approach. I asked her a few questions to see if I could pry open the floodgates of her "backstory". Here’s how it went –
Me: How old are you?
CS: Younger than Madonna
Me: The singer or the Virgin?
Me: Where did you grow up?
CS: Both above and below the equator. But not at the same time. That would have been awkward.
Me: Have you ever been married?
CS: No. (frowns) I don't think that ceremony with the witch doctor counts. Remind me to check on that.
Me: Is it true you used to be a spy for one of the "alphabet" agencies? (NSA, CIA, etc.)
CS: As they say, if I tell you I'd have to kill you. Please don't make me do that. Good publicists are hard to find.
Me: (blinks) You’re serious?
CS: (smiles) Maybe.
Me: Why did you become an author?
CS: I have lots of tales to tell. Some are real. Some are fictional. Sort of like me.
Publicist note: It was worth a try. Please, see the link above to read her 'official' biography.
