Laurie Y. Elrod was born and raised in a small town in the upstate of South Carolina not far from the majestic peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Growing up exploring those mountains and reading every fantasy book she could get her hands on, it isn’t any surprise that she turned to the fantasy genre to write an adventure story that traverses mountains eerily similar to those rolling peaks near her home. Of course, growing up she never knew that one day she would write a novel or two, a story which spawned from a dream that had the audacity to not finish before she awoke–she hates it when that happens–but it did, and it took her in a direction she never expected.
Possessing a Bachelor’s Degree in Business, Laurie has held a myriad of jobs in the retail, communications, and legal fields, but being creative is her true passion. Writer, artist, wife, mother, and child of God, Laurie still resides in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

This was the best fantasy I have read! It kept me hanging on and longing for more..I'm so ready for Book two!!! (hint hint to the author) I could picture every scene and character, she is so descriptive and full of amazing details. You feel as if you are in the story, too! It's hard to put it down, I definitely recommend to those of you who love a little romance,comedy, action and magical powers. I believe young adults would love this as well as adults!! Just sad I am finished with the book but am awaiting the rest of the series to come!!!! Thank you so much Laurie Y. Elrod, you are truly an inspirational writer.
