Musk was born in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada and she spent most of her early life there. She attended Queens University at Kingston and obtained a degree in English Literature. She then moved to Japan where she taught English as a Second Language (ESL) before finally settling in California.
Musk is the author of the contemporary fantasy novel BloodAngel, published in 2005 by the ROC imprint of Penguin Books. Her second book, Uninvited, was released in 2007 and is an unrelated work intended for young-adult readers. A sequel to BloodAngel, Lord of Bones, was released in 2008. Musk is one of the first people to ever use a site like Pinterest to plan out a novel.
In an interview, she identified Margaret Atwood, Joyce Carol Oates, Paul Theroux, George R.R. Martin, Guy Gavriel Kay, and Neil Gaiman as authors whom she could relate her writings to. She also described her books as cross-genre fiction.
Musk also offers TED Talks on a regular basis.
Through IVF, she later gave birth to twin boys, Griffin and Xavier, in 2004; followed by triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai in 2006. On September 13, 2008, she announced that she and Musk were getting a divorce. She later wrote an article for Marie Claire about their relationship and how her husband initially gave her an ultimatum to fix the marriage or he would file for divorce. She claimed to have been a "model ex-wife," on good terms with Musk's second ex-wife, Talulah Riley.
