Val Brown

Val Brown is the real name of well-known online author Cephalgia.

An Airforce brat, Val grew up in a tightly-knit family that supported her in her efforts to become a nurse, which led to her traveling the length and breadth of the country.

In 2001, Val was lucky enough to become friends and then co-writers with the very talented MJ Walker. They posted their first novel length story, Connecting Hearts, on the Internet in 2002. More co-written novels and short stories followed, many of which found their way into print.

With the encouragement of her family and friends, Val continues to write while working as a Telemetry Unit nurse in a northern California hospital and a clinical nursing instructor at the local community college.

This year, another of Val's dreams came true when Blue Feather Books published this book, her first solo effort. She is grateful for her friends' love, her readers' support and her publisher's indulgence.
