Elana A. Mugdan

Author | The Shadow War Saga

Elana A. Mugdan is an author and semi-retired filmmaker based in New York City. She has received many accolades in the film industry, including a number of awards for her feature film Director's Cut, which she wrote, directed, and produced by herself.


An avid reader, Elana is a lifelong fan of fantasy stories - particularly ones which revolve around dragons. She is described by her friends and family as "the weirdest person I know", and wears that weirdness proudly on her sleeve. Some of her favorite authors include J.R.R. Tolkien, Peter S. Beagle, and Robert Jordan.


Elana currently resides in New York, living a quiet but eccentric life with her pet rescue snake, Medusa.


You can follow Elana's struggles on Twitter, you can see a gilded sliver of her writing life on Instagram, and you can read the salty blog which she rarely bothers to update here.
