Elaina lives in magical Ireland after leaving the surrounds of magical Table Mountain at the southern tip of Africa. Having lived in both Ireland and New Zealand, she now realises Ireland’s mists are close to perfection. When writing she puts into words her travels and dreams, because she believes there is inspiration in even the most outrageous tale.

After studying Purchasing Management and working in the formal sector as a buyer, she chose to raise and home-school her three children. She started writing novels around 2002, moving from children’s stories, poetry and short stories to concentrate on larger works.

Previously published by Wild Wolf Publishing, Elaina is currently with Tirgearr Publishing and 13th Sign Publishing, and is also se

Ancient Illumination by Elaina J. Davidson
"“There are only five of us now. We are the last of our kind.”

A great story teller needs to know how to hook the reader immediately. And that’s why Elaina Davidson is fantastic at what she does. As soon as I read the first two lines of the prologue..." Read more of this review »
The Kinfire Tree by Elaina J. Davidson
"I at first thought 'Vallarian' was an anti-depressant.....well no, and well,.. yes. It gave my reading a boost. Vallarian ie recommended in large doses.

No rain. Drought. No water. No food. This is the Slow Kill, death by degrees. Someone has to step up and find a solution, and someone does, but it leads to the Haves and Have-nots, and the result is catastrophic.

I do like a good dystopian scenario r

“Dreams are real; dreams exert influence”

“Tell the truth, traveller, or you create issues hard to overcome later.”
Elaina J. Davidson, The Kinfire Tree

“Never underestimate a situation. Chance is random and is able to undo every preparation.”

“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”
Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man

“Once a King in Narnia, always a King in Narnia. But don't go trying to use the same route twice. Indeed, don't try to get there at all. It'll happen when you're not looking for it. And don't talk too much about it even among yourselves. And don't mention it to anyone else unless you find that they've had adventures of the same sort themselves. What's that? How will you know? Oh, you'll know all right. Odd things, they say-even their looks-will let the secret out. Keep your eyes open. Bless me, what do they teach them at these schools."
-The Professor”
C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

“Tell me, Tool, what dominates your thoughts?'
The Imass shrugged before replying.
'I think of futility, Adjunct.'
'Do all Imass think about futility?'
'No. Few think at all.'
'Why is that?'
The Imass leaned his head to one side and regarded her.
'Because Adjunct, it is futile.”
Steven Erikson, Gardens of the Moon

“Wise words are like arrows flung at your forehead. What do you do? Why, you duck of course.”
Steven Erikson, House of Chains

“The future can ever promise but one thing and one thing only: surprises.”
