Hi, my name is Norma Rrae, and I’m a northern living author. (Pics of northern stuff and books on Instagram.)
I live in BC, Canada, with my husband, three teenage children, four large breed dogs (check out my TikTok for the dog antics,) a hedgehog, a hamster, a snake and a bearded dragon. I have an adult son and a fiery redheaded grandson.
My hobbies? You guessed it: writing. But there’s also reading, photography, poetry, gardening, hunting and fishing.
I read all the books I can. My home luckily features a built-in bookshelf. I find inspiration from Pinterest for organizing my bookshelf. It keeps me sane in the long northern winters. I’m also a sucker for buying books, especially from authors I meet. Even authors I connect with online, my coolest catch was a signed copy from an author in England.
I work as a Pharmacy Technician at the local hospital where I mix chemotherapy.
I love cleaning with music or an audiobook on Saturday mornings.
I’m still deathly scared of the dark with my writer brain.
My favourite thing to do is sit in front of my woodstove writing a new story.
One of the first things I remember learning about being a writer was to read. Read everything; the good, the bad and the ugly. I’m a very slow reader. So that makes my Goodreads challenge hard. I wake up early before work to read every morning with my coffee while laying in bed, cuddling my dogs. At night, I snuggle in and read for nearly ten whole minutes before I fall asleep.
I also frequently write new material for you guys to read here (short stories/poems) and outline future novels for when I’m famous and have the time to sit down and write them all. Those stories spill out of me at random times.
My first published novel is coming with Archway Publishing (sublet of Simon and Schuster) in 2022 called Justyce Scales of The Otherly and Obscura (YA Fantasy Adventure). It’s a mass up between Alice in Wonderland and Stranger Things.
I can’t wait to share links for my novel shortly.
Stay healthy, much love,
