Ellen Jensen Abbott
In my free time, I write fantasy novels—think: centaurs, trolls, fairies and heroes. I have written a trilogy of Young Adult novels, Watersmeet (2009, International Reading Association Honor Book), The Centaur’s Daughter (2011), and The Keeper (2013). I do book signings, school visits, and book clubs when I can spare the time. Fun Fact: I am a member of the Pennsylvania Dedicated Skiers Program (can you be a dedicated skier in PA?), and ski Blue Mountain all winter—provided I can get out from under the papers I’m grading!
