Lena Karynn Tesla has had an avid love for literature since an early age. Whenever she had a minute to spare, she could be found with her nose buried in the nearest book. She read everything on the shelves, from romance to adventure to classics, but her favorite has always been fantasy.
Beginning with the Chronicles of Narnia, Lena has nurtured her love of fantasy through many series. Somewhere along the way, she discovered a love for writing fantasy, as well as reading it, and embarked on her first novel. From there she developed many ideas and branched out into different genres. She continues to write within the super-genre speculative fiction, which includes all the more magical and fantastical genres.
Lena was homeschooled throughout grade school and high school, and had the privilege of studying the Great Books with like-minded students and scholars at the Templeton Honors College, both during and after high school. She currently resides in the Green Mountains of New England with her two adorable cats, where she pursues dance and writing with an equal fervor. She is never without a book at her side, but is always prepared for whatever reading emergency might arise.
