T. M. Crone has a B.S. in Horticulture from the Pennsylvania State University. She has had many odd jobs before going on for her PhD in Molecular Biology, much of them being in a greenhouse or class room setting. She spent years in cancer research and traveled the US and abroad presenting her work. 
She has traveled extensively throughout the USA with her family, seeking out the roads and hiking trails less traveled.  Nature has been her guide most of her life, and she has developed a deep respect for the Earth and all life in it, with the exception of spiders. Her love for nature and the outdoors, her scientific background, and her understanding of what is morally right are incorporated in each of her stories--albeit in a twisted, sometimes quirky or dark perspective.
