Shayla Morgansen – author of Chosen, Book One of The Elm Stone Saga – is a writer, primary school teacher and sometimes blogger. She is one of those seemingly normal people you eventually edge away from at parties because once you get her started on the topic of her storytelling, she gets talking about how she perceives her characters to be real people, somewhere, in some other universe. She started writing The Elm Stone Saga in her teens when she found the names Aristea and Renatus in a names origin book. She has a background in drama and new age, both of which influence her writing choices. She is a graduate of Griffith University and has worked in numerous early childhood settings, where her enthusiasm for language and all things magical can be put to good use. Originally from Masterton, New Zealand, Shayla now resides in Brisbane, Australia with her cat and a very overfull bookshelf.
