I think I have the most trouble writing this page. Every time I write an appropriate ‘Hello’, I go back to read later on and dislike it.
So, now you will only get it in the form of a query letter. To feel my pain as an unpublished author in the slush piles of agents across three countries trying to point a light at my work.
My name is Norma Rrae, I’m an aspiring author living in Northern BC with my husband and three large breed dogs. I have four children (currently an empty-nester) a grandchild (yes, I’m too young to be a grandma, blah blah blah) and a wall sized bookshelf to keep me company on lonely days.
I have written six novels complete to date and am currently writing my seventh (with two more outlined and waiting in queue). I love writing poetry and sharing my works online here for people to read while I patiently await the right agent for me.
I love all genres so I find it hard to place myself in one. I started with a literary adult fiction, moved to psychological thriller then to YA fantasy. Fantasy is the funnest by far but the market is flooded apparently.
So, I dub myself a dark fantasy writing (since I struggle with happy endings- they just don’t pull the same emotion) and happily write horror, smut and dark poetry.
I enter contests faster than I can write, which I guess is my own challenge to myself 😉 I have won my first poetry contest, in an Ekphrastic Writing contest for Wild Words of the North and the PLRAC (Peace Liard Region Arts Council).
I have a serial short story, Temerarious Tabias, with hand drawn comics (that I really struggle with) that is being published weekly in the local newspaper and here’s a link.
I got accepted into an anthology due to be published August 2020, Hot Morrocan Nights. Facebook link to anthology group below.
All the photos on my website are my own originals, I’ve always loved photography and will one day get a proper camera. Rather than my 12 megapixel camera from iPhone.
I love road trips (when my husband drives) and visiting family (so they cook for me). I often show up at events for the free food (including Sikh temples, weddings with no invite and realtor open houses).
Thanks for visiting, be sure to check out my ONLINE STORIES page to read my work and NOVELS for an overview and TEMERARIOUS TABIAS for my serial story and comic.
