Elly Ha is an ace/aro fantasy author who probably writes to cope with mental illness. All jokes aside, her love for creating stories stems mostly from non-book media such as the Legend of Zelda series, Elden Ring, and Stardew Valley. Being a Korean-American married into a Persian-Pakistani family, she’s always enjoying the best of both cultures, namely the food. Peculiarly, all of her fantasy characters end up inheriting at least some part of her multifaceted identity.
More often than not, she can be found daydreaming in her Northern Virginia office about unique magic systems and original mythologies that literally no one else will know about, when really, she should be tackling that huge pile of TBR books or going outside and socializing.
