Lexie Elliott has been writing for as long as she can remember, but she began to focus on it more seriously after she lost her banking job in 2009 due to the Global Financial Crisis.

Whilst there are so many different books I have loved immersing myself in, if I'm getting a free passport to another universe I'm going to choose somewhere where I can see things and do things that are very different to my present reality. When I was in my early teens I adored Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series, so I would choose to go to Pern. After all, who wouldn't want to see another planet and ride a dragon?!(less)
