Elayne Harris devoted many years of her life to becoming a doctor of musical arts and has long been a performing musician, teaching artist, and lover of all things drums. She is also a creator of arts and crafts, a compulsive reader, and an avid learner/hobbyist. Her first books were part of an elementary school initiative when she was in first and second grade. They were fully illustrated, typed, and laminated and still exist in a box somewhere under the stairs. She now embraces life as a mother and wife, musician and writer, while maintaining a busy Bob’s Burgers and Great British Baking Show watching schedule. Though currently a resident of Austin, TX, she is constantly on the lookout for ways to escape.
