Melody Daggerhart is a writer, editor, data consultant, and artist currently living in Washington state. She has been writing and illustrating novels ever since she was old enough to hold crayons and talk to stuffed animals. After pursuing an education in English literature and working in a library and as a freelance consultant, she figures she is ready to share her fanciful tales with more than her statuary, guinea pigs, cats, best friends, and her own captive children.
Her favorite genre to read and write is dark fantasy, but sprinklings of comedy, horror, adventure, steampunk, romance, and contemporary elements seem to have fallen into her Elf Gate Series, as well. (Hair color is subject to change with writing projects and moods.)
Favorite author influences include Anne Rice, R.A. Salvatore, H.P. Lovecraft, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Dr. Seuss among countless others.

Hoping for answers on how to fix the ancient elf gates, English teen Aija and her dark elf ally, Trizryn, must deliver stolen Derra Eirlyn documents to the Deep Warrens for translation. But their investigation on the mysterious necromancer who took control of Absin'navad leads to a gruesome discovery concerning humans in the fae realm and a shocking truth about Trizryn's origins.
Trapped in the land of the fae, English teen Aija and her dark elf ally, Trizryn, are hunted by his Derra Eirlyn summoner, Kassí. Aija needs an elf gate to go home, and Trizryn needs to steal his summoning scroll to avoid being tracked. But when Kassí does her own investigation on the crumbling gates, they all soon discover a more immediate and deadly threat in their midst.
When an English teen tries to help an injured elf in the woods near her home, Aija finds herself suddenly, and mistakenly, abducted into the realms of the fae. But the gate between their worlds has been destroyed by a dragon, and humans are executed on sight in this kingdom.
