S.M. Gilson


S.M.Gilson is the third child of six. She grew up just outside of a small town, in Northern California. She spent most of her time outdoors making up her own world in the forest with her older sister. She began her interest in books and writing when she was in high school. Fantasy has always been her passion. If she wasn’t reading fantasy books she was writing poems, short stories or even drawing fairies on her notepad at school. She had taken a few writing classes to perfect her writing and in the process started on some children’s books that will become a spin-off to the Atheness series. She began her first book when she was working at a preschool and teaching the children about mythical creatures. She came up with the idea of the story and drew many pictures of the characters in the book; before “The Secret to Atheness” was ever finished.
S.M.Gilson now lives in Austin, TX with her husband and young daughter that they adopted in late 2011. She continues to write and come up with more ideas inspired by her daughter and other author’s books that she has read.
