Elayne Griffith grew up drawing, writing, reading, riding horses, and climbing trees in the Sierra Nevada foothills. She ran away to L.A. for a degree in art and not a clue of what to do with it. After seven years of bumbling around in the city, she ran back to the mountains and found her love and passion: Writing. With the tenacity of a Honey Badger she has written her first Y.A. novel and is avidly creating many more works. She believes in doing what truly makes you happy, for life is short!
