About the Author

Dallas grew up just outside of Augusta, Georgia, the daughter of environmental engineer Jayson Duncan and retired educator & published author Terri Kaye Duncan. Her younger brother, Barret, is a successful pharmacist and owner of Cold Brewing Company.After stints in Macon and the Atlanta area, Dallas is now proud to again call the Classic City of Athens, Georgia, home, along with her three cats. She graduated from the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences in 2011 with dual bachelors of science in agriculture degrees: one in animal science with a meat sciences emphasis, the second in agricultural communication.Her background is heavy in traditional print journalism and includes award-winning publications The Red & Black, The Times, and The Georgia Voice. She owned agriCULTURE Magazine from 2015 to 2016 and worked extensively in the agricultural media world before starting her own company as a photographer and digital storyteller. Though her full-time career includes both butchery and photography, social media and graphic design, Dallas was a storyteller long before she could write.She illustrated books and told her parents the words to write on each page. In fact, the series now known as The Meridian Trilogy began as one such drawing when she was only five years old! By first grade, Dallas was writing books herself, telling imaginative stories about her beloved Boston terrier Nicky and fictional sets of animal characters. Simultaneously, Dallas devoured books faster than her parents could buy them. She craved getting lost in new worlds and other places, and used her Barbie dolls and Beanie Babies to act out fan fiction based on the creatures and people other authors created.Nowadays, Dallas never stops creating, though she's moved on from toys acting out others' storylines to actually writing the stories herself! She has multiple novels and series planned, including the second and third books in The Meridian Trilogy and a prequel that follows the founding of its magical setting, Heáhwolcen. She finds inspiration in the strangest of places, and has been known to wake up out of a dead sleep to furiously scribble a note to herself for future stories, or to connect plot points that drag out her writing process.When Dallas isn't writing or working, she's probably knitting and listening to an audiobook ... or sipping a cold beer, iced covfefe, or whiskey cocktail at one of her favorite establishments. Occasionally she's doing all of the above, given that her cozy couch is also one of her favorite establishments. She is a massive Georgia Bulldogs football fan, loves to cosplay no matter the season, and grounds herself through all the busy using a variety of ritual and nature.Her books, photo prints, and knitted gifts can be purchased through Witchling Boudoir, the retail arm of her business. She encourages everyone to have confidence in their own magic, and to embrace patience and grace when the Universe and Nature present challenges that seem impossible to endure.
