Elisabeth Hamill is a nurse/wife/mom by day, unabashed geek/chocoholic/closet fantasy novelist by night. She lives with her family, dog, and cat in the wilds of eastern suburban Kansas, where they fend off flying monkey attacks and prep for the zombie apocalypse.
On a more serious note, this is the fufillment of Elisabeth's lifelong dream to be an author. She is a cancer survivor, and wrote a large portion of her book, "Song Magick", during her cancer treatment and recuperation. She is enjoying good health and is deeply embroiled in her next project, an urban fantasy.
From fantasy and steampunk, to mystery and thriller, to contemporary social issue and romance, the authors in this book have all written novels that feature strong girls as protagonists.

Able to control the actions and emotions of others with her melodic enchantments, the violent aftermath of an accidental spell has left Telyn exiled from the King’s court - unaware of the price on her head.
