Tayvia Pierce, the author of the Rise of The Phoenix series, was born in southern Alberta, Canada, where she lived until 2005. After completing high school, she attended college to pursue a career in tourism, having a love of travel and a desire to see the beauty of the world for herself.  She married in 2005 and moved shortly after, heading up to central Alberta in support of her husband’s job. They had two children, but as a stay-at-home mom, she struggled to find her passion. During this time, she discovered story-based MMORPGs and loved the immersion of the roleplay community within these created worlds. The collaborative story-telling aspect appealed to her, and she became interested in the lore and history development of each world.  This hobby led her to befriend someone who dared her to use her love of storytelling to write a book, putting forth a challenge - he would write one too and the first one to publish would ‘win’. This prompted her to finally put pen to paper and begin the process of writing a book. His death not long after his dare hit her hard, but a year later, another whom she now calls her Muse encouraged her to write another book, and so she began developing the world of Isirion and the Rise of The Phoenix series.   During this time, she also worked as a freelance copywriter, writing several children’s books as well as eBooks on behalf of a handful of celebrities, learning the art of wordsmithing and the unique value of language along the way.  In 2018, she split from her husband and returned to Southern Alberta with her two kids. Supporting herself and the kids with a job as a medical assistant, she finally self-published Book 1, A Single Spark, in May 2019. She gave herself exactly 3 days of celebrating before starting to work on book 2!  Tayvia is currently working on acquiring her professional editing certification, initially intending to take only a few classes to become a better writer, but soon decided on a blend of editing and writing to build a career for herself.  " />
