Born in a small town with little to occupy her time, Elysae Shar developed a love for both books and video games. By the age of eight, that love had become a desire to write. Almost twenty years later, after many false starts Elyse Shar's childhood dream became reality with the publication of John & Other Stories.
Though in and of itself a bad experience, this was mostly thanks to her suffering a stroke at the age of twenty-one and retaining permanent damage. With time for writing now abundant, it still took a further few years until she passed the final hurdle.
