Elijah David was raised in the Florida Panhandle, and during his middle and high school years moved around the Southeast and Midwest.

Though he has always been a storyteller (a penchant he borrowed from his dad), he started writing seriously when he decided he wanted to write something with the same power as the Narnia books.

Now he writes, and occasionally blogs, from the Chattanooga area, where he lives with his wife, son, and their cat Pumpkin.

We're officially into the autumn season and October (and Inktober*) has begun. That means our household is in for our annual spooky/Halloween/autumn movie marathon. One of our favorites to bring out this time of year is M. Night Shyamalan's The Village. It's been at least a year, if not several, since I last watched this one but it still makes me happy as both a consumer and creator of stories.... Read more of this blog post »
