About Emily Schneider
2021 Best Indie Book Award® Fantasy Winner & 2022 Minnesota Author Project YA Fiction Winner
Emily Schneider grew up in Minnesota where she spent most of her life studying music and singing, which ironically has nothing to do with writing fantasy novels. While music had always been a passion, Emily could never get away from her love of reading and writing books full of dragons, Fae, monsters, magic, and romance. When she is not writing about dragons and magic, you can find Emily chasing around her two dogs, Pixel and Frodo, playing Mario Kart with her husband, or watching The Lord of the Rings for the one-hundred-and-eleventh time. Emily is the author of the multi-award-winning novel Scales of Ash & Smoke.
