Elaine Jemmett was born in the city and raised in the country, the youngest child of three. She grew up a tumbling tomboy behind two brothers, and spent her free time rambling in the woods with the family dog, practising archery and horseback riding, and later, martial arts.
Elaine graduated from Toronto’s York University with a degree in English Literature and worked as a legal editor, general editor, and author’s representative. The Legacy and the Lion is her first published novel.
She lives in the country outside of Toronto with her husband, two children, and two adoptees – a gracious guinea pig and a curious cat.
