Short biography
Gaelen Foley was born on November 16, 1973 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, and she has three sisters. She holds a B.A. in English literature with a minor in philosophy from the State University of New York, College at Fredonia, New York.

After college, she dedicated herself completely to her artistic pursuits, spending five and a half years moonlighting as a waitress to keep her days free for writing and honing her craft. Finally, after four unsuccessful manuscripts, her fifth attempt sold to Bertelsmann. In 1998 her first novel The Pirate Prince was published.

Gaelen lives near Pittsburgh, PA with her college-sweetheart husband, Eric, and a spoiled bichon frise called Bubble. She is hard at work on her next book.
