About Marla Himeda
Marla Himeda is a lifelong writer and musician who has taught piano and clarinet for over half a century. She lives in Hawaii, where she teaches her own theory and composition courses, coaches ensemble groups, and is a prolific arranger of chamber music for winds. The author can’t remember a time she hasn’t written stories and will happily lose herself in books of any genre, but has a special love for fantasy. The Bardic Isles Series is a merging of her two passions—music and writing—and portrays a world that she unabashedly admits loving to escape to, where music is the magic that inspires her books. Instead of the cats that all card-carrying authors have, she surrounds herself with myriad flavors of homemade ice cream.
