By Ariella Moon Recently, I was interviewed on Colliding Worlds Radio with two children’s authors, Rose King and Ruthie Darling.

Ariella Moon

Ariella Moon draws upon her experiences as a shaman and former teen to create magical Young Adult fiction. Her Two Realms Trilogy is a medieval fantasy adventure series. The Teen Wytche Saga is a series of sweet contemporary paranormal romances.

Ariella spent her childhood searching for a magical wardrobe that would transport her to Narnia. Extreme math anxiety and taller students that mistook her for a leaning post marred her youth. Despite these horrors, she graduated summa cum laude from the University of California at Davis. She lives a nearly normal life doting on her extraordinary daughter, two shamelessly spoiled dogs, and a media-shy dragon.

Ariella loves to hear from her readers. You can reach her here.

on January 12, 2018

Judy, a super-fan, awesome cook, and co-founder of two San Francisco Bay Area book clubs, recently bemoaned the lack of food mentioned in my Arthurian fantasy, THE AMBER ELIXIR.
