Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, S.T. Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (where she became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and studied Shakespeare in Europe… where she became overly fond of McVitie's cookies.

Her love of Scandinavian culture, and a very patient Norwegian teacher, inspired her YA Norse fantasy series' (Viking Academy, Ære Saga, Elsker Saga, and Alfheim Academy). Now, S.T. is excited to share Norse myths and folklore with Middle Grade readers.

S.T.'s deep love of a galaxy far, far away led to her writing children's books for the Star Wars franchise. As an experienced IP writer, she's written multiple books published by Disney-Lucasfilm Press and its licensees, and looks to expand into additional beloved IP projects.

Hi Eevee23 -
I'm giving Ull and Kristia a little break from me while I work on writing The Aere Saga. The new series focuses on Gunnar's brother Henrik Andersson and his own Norse crew, though there might just be cameos from some of the Elsker gang. ;) I'm really excited to share these stories with you - the first book comes out in December 2015!! http://www.stbende.com/#!aeresaga/czvl

The Aere Saga (working title) is my 2015 project. It spins from the Elsker world by introducing us to Gunnar's brother Henrik, and his motley Norse crew. I don't have a publication date yet, but I'm drafting the second of the three planned Aere novels... and I can't wait for y'all to read them! (less)

Although this new normal still feels anything but, I've been amazed by all of the kindness I've seen over these past few weeks - from neighbors leaving groceries (and toilet paper!) on seniors' doorsteps, to artists creating online classes for kids who have lost their routines (Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems is EVERYTHING!), to the INCREDIBLE nurse Read more of this blog post »
