Allyssa Painter once dreamed of being a Native American, helping children, and writing books. Since her dreams of being an American Indian were not meant to be, she settled for training to become an elementary and special education teacher and writing young adult novels in order to fulfill her other aspirations. She was born and raised in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia, and still resides there with her high-school-sweetheart, Navy-Sailor husband, while she attends Concord University. In her spare time, she loves to visit with her chaotic family, explore exciting places in novels, and create new worlds in her writing.
Allyssa is the author of Timekeeper Rising (August 1, 2015) and Timekeeper Falling (Tentatively December 2015). To learn more about Allyssa and her books, please visit her website at http://allyssapainter.wordpress.com.
