I’m a Dark Fantasy writer. I enjoy writing everything from Adult Literary Fiction to Fantasy Thrillers to YA Horror.
I live in BC, Canada, with my husband, three teenage children, four large breed dogs, a hedgehog, a hamster, a snake and a bearded dragon. My oldest son has already moved out on his own and has his own child, a fiery redhead, that looks exactly like my adult son. I know already why being a grandparent is so amazing, it’s like I can redo my son’s younger years (without all the messy parts.)
My hobbies? You guessed it: writing. But there’s also reading, photography, poetry, gardening, hunting and fishing. And sleeping. I love dreaming and spent a solid year writing them down every night. I often pull inspiration from my dreams and thank my subconscious for this (except when the dream is scary and leaves me feeling spooked for the day.)
I read all the books I can. My house features a full wall bookshelf where I keep sane during long northern winters by buying new books, especially from authors I meet and reorganizing them on my shelf with inspiration from Pinterest. My coolest catch was a signed copy from an author in England.
I work as a Community and Family Services Coordinator at The Salvation Army Food Bank and feel that all my life circumstances have brought me exactly to where I need to be and I love my new work family already.
Saturdays for me are nearly always the same; Audiobook, cleaning, music, cleaning, writing, cleaning, laundry, writing, eating, shopping, writing then movie night. Clock work. It’s a beautiful thing.
The worst mix of two chemicals in my life- is darkness and my over active imagination, so yes, I am deathly afraid of the dark.
My favourite thing to do is sit in front of my woodstove writing a new story and cuddling my dogs.
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 but I still 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.
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 Thriller.) The novel is a mass up between Alice in Wonderland and Stranger Things.
