Ellen A. Roth is the author of Ten Fingers Touching, a beautifully illustrated fairy for grown-ups. This spellbinding, romantic escape transports adults to an imaginary world with the same pleasure they experienced in reading fairy tales as youths.

As a child, Roth was enchanted by fairytales and spent countless hours reading and dreaming. Her creative impulses inspired her to major in art and art history at Goucher College where she received her BA. After getting an MFA from Syracuse University, Roth moved to Pittsburgh, PA where she worked as a registered art therapist. Subsequently, she earned her PhD from the University of Pittsburgh. In 1991, Roth co-founded Getting to the Point, Inc., a premier relocation consulting firm.
