Two popular fantasy authors appearing together at Dark Carnival.
Kate Elliott previously wrote the Crown of Stars fantasy series, the science- fictional Novels of the Jaran, and The Golden Key, a collaboration with Melanie Rawn and Jennifer Roberson. She has been a finalist for both the World Fantasy and the Nebula Awards.
Born in Iowa, she spent her childhood in rural Oregon outside the thriving metropolis of Junction City (population 2,500). No doubt the wholesome country environment and lack of exciting night life led her to the joys of lurid adventure fiction. After reading The Lord of the Rings in eighth grade, and failing after many attempts to find a working gateway into Middle Earth, she set her sights on writing novels set in fantastic landscapes and has never looked back or, for that matter, really grown up.
With her archaeologist spouse and three children, she has both traveled through and resided in several exotic locales, although currently she lives in Hawaii.Click here to visit Kate's website
