Author Scarborough was born on 23rd March, 1947 in Kansas City. Before getting involved in the field of writing, she used to work as an RN. Currently, Scarborough has a home in Port Townsend, Washington, where she spends most of her daytime writing novels. One of the high points of Scarborough’s career is teaming up with Anne McCaffrey. The two have worked together on multiple novel series.

Scarborough was raised in her city of birth until she grew old enough to move out and live on her own. She completed a course in RN from a nursing school in Kansas City and worked as a nurse for several years. For a period of five years, Scarborough worked in the army, of which she completed 12 months with a unit in Vietnam. It was in 1982 that Scarborough thought of taking the pen in her hand to writing something exciting. She wrote and released her first novel in the same year. In 1987, Scarborough earned a B.A. degree from Alaska University and then continued to write novels for the rest of her life. Even though Scarborough has crossed the 70 year mark, she is still active today. Scarborough always makes sure that she finishes at least one novel each year and not keep her fans eagerly waiting.

Scarborough had married her now-divorced husband Richard Kacsur in 1975. They separated in 1981. Since then, she has lived alone without any partner. Scarborough has said that her novel, The Healer’s War, was inspired by her own career as a nurse. Her 1994 novel, Godmother, was influenced by her friendship with social workers.

This book opens by showing that Ned Buntline is a young newspaper editor based in San Francisco. She is determined to achieve success as an author, like her idol, by writing western dreadful novels.

In order to fulfill her dreams, she takes up the identity of Valentine Lovelace and heads for the Wild West. However, her dreams get shattered when Valentine gets abducted by Comanches from a train. She ends up in the captivity of a ruthless warlord, Frank Drake. Frank is the owner of Fort Draco, where Valentine is held captive. She finds that the fort is full of nightmare carryings-on and intrigue. Valentine Lovelace realizes that if she wishes to get out alive from the captivity, then she must fight against the gunslingers, heat stroke, hostile Indians, and a dragon that thrives on people’s livestock and controls the only water supply in the entire desert region. While going through all this, Valentine keeps taking notes to develop this real-life experience into a novel. Even in times of adversity, Valentine finds a way to prosper and achieve her dream.

The second volume of the series is called ‘The Goldcamp Vampire or the Sanguinary Sourdough’. It was published by Spectra in 1987. This novel revolves around the Klondike Count’s mystery. Initially, it is depicted that Valentine Lovelace looks to take up another adventure as she likes them very much. She receives an invitation from the former mistress of her deceased father to visit the Yukon and decides to go on the adventurous journey. Valentine hopes to find lots of great stories to take notes and include in her new novel. She also hopes to meet interesting new people. Later, Valentine Lovelace comes across Vasily Bledinoff and becomes quite astonished to see him. He is well-educated, distinguished, incredibly suave, and to Valentine’s surprise, a vampire. Valentine thinks that she has landed herself in great trouble. Her difficulties grow even more when she comes to know that Vasily intends to add her to his clan as a member. Valentine starts looking for ways to run away as far as possible from Vasily Bledinoff and never return to the place ever again. This book received a good response from readers all over the world.
