Court Ellyn


I write character-driven fantasy. Look for the release of Falcons Rising, a high-fantasy family saga, in Spring 2012.

Somewhere in between dragon dens, haunted bogs, and battlefields strewn with otherworldly foes, I moderate the LegendFire Creative Writing Community at, the best community of amateur writers on the planet, in my humble opinion.

  • Winter's Bite on May 20, 2011

    Fantastic piece of storytelling and characterization. These along with a fully believable setting and vivid imagery made this short story a joy to experience. A few minor typos do not detract from this tense and heartrending tale about a grandmother and former mercenary who must decide to take up her sword again to help save her village from terrifying, bloodthirsty monsters. This is one of those stories that, when I read the last word, I sat back and sighed, my heart full of emotions. Readers of fantasy will not be disappointed.

    Delightful, tender, and moving. The narrator's voice is completely believable, the tale captivating, not like fireworks, but like a river. Well done.
