Skylar Kaylyn is 16 years old and was born in Mission Viejo, CA, spending most of her life growing up in a small town in Wyoming. She loves her family, dancing – especially hip hop, but can do a mean square dance, too.  Her favorite animals are cats, especially her cat, Chocolate.

Skylar has loved music and has been writing songs since before she could walk or talk, and says, “It’s all I remember.”  She has been bringing her gift of song, dance and acting to her community her entire life, singing and acting in her church from a very young age.  She recently started vocal lessons with Christian singer and musician Johnny Britt.  In 2011, she started writing songs in order to record them, and says, “I think that I have written about a variety of feelings and issues that people of all ages will be able to identify with.”  

C.S. Marks is best known for her trilogy of high fantasy novels (Elfhunter; Fire-heart; Ravenshade). Her books have earned acclaim from a wide range of readers, particularly for depth of character development, compelling storyline and writing excellence. 

After a year of all titles being “out of print and unavailable”, Chris is now looking forward to the re-release of the newly remastered Elfhunter trilogy, to be followed by comic book and graphic novel adaptations. 
C.S. Marks holds a doctorate in Life Sciences, and is a Professor at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, where she has taught Equine Science for twenty years. She is a popular panelist, seminar presenter, and lecturer. Her no-nonsense, realistic, practical-yet-good-humored approach has benefited many aspiring authors. She encourages writers who strive for excellence, regardless of publishing path chosen.
