Whitney Estenson was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas. The daughter of two teachers, she spent her summers swimming at the pool. Through the years, she played several sports, including; softball, basketball, volleyball and running track. While traveling to the next tournament, whether it be an hour away, or several states away, Whitney always traveled with a book. It was on these long trips that she developed a love of supernatural and fantasy stories.

After graduating high school, Whitney attended Washburn University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English Education in 2009. That summer, she married her husband Josh in a seven minute ceremony on a Jamaican beach. When she returned, she began her teaching career and has been teaching middle school ever since. In 2012, she received a Master of Science in Educational Technology from Pittsburg State University.  In 2013, Whitney and Josh welcomed their daughter.

When she’s not teaching or writing, Whitney loves to swim and ride four wheelers with her husband and daughter.
