Ark Reynes was born in Bergen, Norway, on June 23rd, 1983. She has a master's degree in archaeology, and therefore felt it was only natural that she started working as an insurance advisor. Always a bit of a book-worm, it wasn't until she picked up 'The Eye of the World' by Robert Jordan, that her love for fantasy was born.
She's known she wanted to become a writer for years, and has several massive projects that she's working on. To give herself a break from those, she also likes to challenge herself to write shorter stories, ones that perhaps doesn't need at least three sequels and a movie. That is still a bit of a work in project.
She now lives just outside Bergen, in a flat she shares with her dog Moya, and more book that she has shelves to put them on.
