When you have a husband-wife team of writers, reader interest is peaked. But, when the wife is a native born Russian, and the husband is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army, the rumor mill operates at full speed. Contrary to rumor, however, Ilona Andews I just a pseudonym for Ilona and Gordon, who met while in an English Composition 101 class in college. Gordon even says Ilona got a better grade than he did.
The couple has co-authored four NYT and USAT bestselling series books, and a #1 NYT bestselling in the urban fantasy of Kate Daniel's, a more rustic fantasy entitled the Edge, a paranormal romance called Hidden Legacy, and the free weekly serial Innkeeper Chronicles (that and other interesting details can be found on their website).
