HD Smith grew up in a small town in South Carolina. After high school she attended several schools on the quest to discover the perfect “day job”. After working for a year she went back to school for a Masters Degree in Computer Science. Then after another year, she asked, “Is this it?” She decided the answer was “no” and started writing her first book, Keegan’s Point. HD still has the day job, which she loves, but writing brings a new joy to her life that work alone can’t accomplish.
