Gena Ervin is a YA Fantasy author and amateur photographer living in New Mexico who has earned a B.S. in Communications from Eastern New Mexico University. She has worked in the broadcast news field for four years but prefers being an author since she can talk to her imaginary friends and people don’t question it. She is very inquisitive and always searching for knowledge, a theme that also tends to show itself in her work. She spent her youth with her nose in a book and also writing about the events of the neighborhood kids sometimes embellishing the details with monsters or other fantasy creatures. Her formative years were spent writing fantasy or horror short stories, some of which have been published online.
A reflection of herself, her characters are timid at first but tend to stand up and push through when times get tough. They are dedicated to a goal and always fight for what’s right, not what’s easy. She believes wholeheartedly in fairies and gnomes and wishes the house gremlins would stop hiding things when she needs them most. But most of all, she believes that magic exists within everyone who chooses to use it. When not writing, her procrastination techniques include trying out bread recipes, working on various art projects, and watching copious amounts of YouTube videos.
