Shelly Jarvis began working on speculative fiction thanks to a writing assignment in Mrs. Bettijane Burger's eleventh grade English class, but her passion for writing developed at seven years old when she wrote a Halloween tale about a witch and a ghost who became best friends.

An avid science fiction and fantasy reader, she spends a portion of each day dwelling in other worlds.

Shelly's biggest influences are Madeleine L'Engle, JRR Tolkien, Timothy Zahn, George RR Martin, & Patrick Rothfuss.

Shelly enjoys spending time with her wacky spouse, her wonderful nephews, and her rescue pups, Gimli, Butters, Fergus, and Pickles. ​She currently resides near Charleston, West Virginia, in the wild and wonderful mountains that have her heart.
