"We don't create a fantasy world to escape reality, we create it to be able to stay"
Jenna E. Faas is the author of Pixie Dust, the first book in the Jelf Academy series. She lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her husband, son, and two Australian shepherds. From the first time Jenna turned the pages of a book, she became obsessed. As a young girl, she was always making up stories which she jotted down in school notebooks. An avid reader, she would get lost in fantasy and wished magic existed. Jenna began the concept of Pixie Dust when she was seventeen and expanded on the creation of the world through her college years. Her bachelors degree in Geology helped to inspire pixie magic, since gemstones and minerals are used to create pixie charms. When Jenna isn't writing or reading, she enjoys spending time with her family, working on arts and crafts, and singing to her favorite songs. She is currently working on the next installment of the Jelf Academy series: Wasp's Nest
