E.L. Bates is a writer living on Massachusetts' north shore. A storyteller from the time she could talk, as soon as she learned to write she began putting her stories on paper and inflicting them on the general public. Stories of magic and derring-do have been her favorites from almost as young, followed shortly by space opera and other science fiction. She is a firm believer in Lloyd Alexander's maxim that "fantasy is not an escape from reality; it is a way of understanding reality." It's also a lot of fun both to write and to read. With two children at home, most of her days are spent writing living epistles, but when she gets the chance she enjoys reading, knitting, and ice skating. You can find her online at stardancepress.com.
