Karen Marie Moning was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, the daughter of Anthony R. Moning and Janet L. Moning. Moning graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor's degree in Society and Law. Before becoming a full-time writer, she worked as a bartender, a computer consultant, and an insurance specialist.

Moning began her career writing paranormal romance set in Scotland but as she became increasingly fascinated with Celtic mythology, she switched genres to Urban Fantasy and location to Dublin, Ireland, so she could focus on the Tuatha Dé Danann, or Fae—an ancient race of immortal beings who have lived secretly among humans for millennia.[5]

Fever Moon

Fever Moon is an original story from Karen Marie Moning, which has been adapted into a graphic novel by David Lawrence and illustrated by Al Rio. In this installment of the series, Mac and Barrons work together to defeat the Fear Dorcha. When it becomes clear that this epic evil is hunting Mac, slowly killing those closest to her, Mac’s only weapons are her lover, Barrons and the Spear of Destiny.[6]

Fever World Series

The Fever World Series is a spinoff from the original MacKayla Lane/Jericho Barrons storyline. Iced features Dani O’Mally, a rebellious young sidhe-seer as the main protagonist. Moning originally planned the series as five additional books but has since stated she condensed it into four. Burned, Feverborn and Feversong also feature MacKayla Lane as a primary character, with the reappearance of Barrons, Ryodan, Christian, the mysterious Dancer and many others. Moning has stated that while each of the books will be a 'stand-alone mystery', they will contain 'larger plot arcs' which will answer many questions left unanswered in the Fever series.[7][8]
