Author Biography

Elena Paige loves telling stories which inspire and transform young readers. She writes from the heart, and especially loves weaving magic into many of her books. Some of her stories are based on real life events and some are cleverly crafted in her imagination. She never releases a book without running it past her two marketing consultants - her daughter, aged 10 who inspects all books for elements of magic, and her son 13, who insists every story must include humor. Of course they don't always get their way!

As a child she was constantly reading Enid Blyton books and now insists that magic is REAL! Her fiction stories help children think and feel more positively about themselves and life.

On Sunday mornings you can find her hiding under her doona cover reading, while her children are wondering where their favorite book has disappeared to.
