Professional Bio:

Nia Markos was born in Montreal, Canada, to Greek parents who loved to indulge her with tales of mythology and history. Drawing inspiration from their stories and combining them with her love of the paranormal, she weaves tales for her young/new adult audience.
After graduating college, Nia went to on to study history at university. At a crossroads in her life, the opportunity presented itself to enter the work force in something other than what she had foreseen. For over thirty years she worked in the financial sector.
An avid, ferocious reader of practically anything written, be it historical, fantasy, thrillers or spy novels, her preferred reading has been in the young adult paranormal genre. Writing is a passion, one which she discovered later in life.
Her first book release, Elements (The Crystal Series Book One), has garnered great reviews. Three books later, the complete trilogy is available. The final installment of The Crystal Series, released in late 2017, brings a conclusion to that part of the story. Her new continuing series, The Elleanor Stone Collection, builds on that world, adding new characters and taking them on to greater adventures.
