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, teen daughter and three large dogs (check out my TikTok for the dog antics.) I have three more children/step-children that have moved out or live with other parents, plus a grandson that is a fiery redhead (yes, I’m a young grandma, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.)
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. I love house cleaning with music on Saturday mornings. I’m still deathly scared everytime my husband takes me hunting. I love the photos, the rush of adrenaline and the courage I gain. Somedays, he even gets me pulled away from my laptop long enough for dog walking along rivers,
My bookshelf and wood heat fireplace make my home perfect.
And my favourite thing to do is sit in front of the fire writing.
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’m currently writing my seventh novel- Indiscernible, my first horror,
I also frequently write new material for you guys to read here (short stories/poems) and outline future books when I’m famous and have 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 2021. Cattywampus is a YA Fantasy, and you can click above (NOVELS) to read the blurb.
With the great success of my Not Me novel running online, I have begun outlining a second along with that same genre (Adult Literary Fiction.)
Online right now is Flee Obscura, a YA Thriller, and it’s bi-weekly plus my serial poems, which are every three days or so.
My first publication, a spicy romance short story, White Sheets, is available now. Click here to purchase the Anthology- Hot Moroccan Nights- where White Sheets is featured.
