COURT ELLYN has been building plots and characters since she could hold a pen. When she was fourteen she began filling notebooks with stories, finishing her first (unreadable) novel before she graduated high school. What began as a love for historical fiction quickly gravitated toward the fantastical.

In 2000 she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BA in English. Nine years later, she acquired ownership of LegendFire Creative Writing Community, where she labored to provide a safe haven for burgeoning writers to hone their craft until the forum closed in 2017.

She lives in Small Town, Oklahoma, and dreams of extraplanar travel and defeating dragons alongside her husband, giant dog, and two mischievous cats.
