About

author st bende pichiBefore finding domestic bliss in suburbia, S.T. Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (where she became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and studied Shakespeare in Europe… where she became overly fond of the musical Cats.

Her Scandinavian heritage and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired her YA Norse fantasy series’ (Ære Saga, Viking Academy, Shieldmaiden Squadron, Elsker Saga, and Alfheim Academy). And her deep love of a galaxy far, far away led to her writing children’s books for the Star Wars franchise. As an experienced IP writer, she’s written multiple books published by Disney, Lucasfilm, and The Jim Henson Company, and looks to expand into additional beloved licensed projects.

When she’s not creating stories, S.T. dreams of skiing on Jotunheim and Hoth.
