Ariel Paiement is a Christian speculative fiction author. She enjoys all ranges of books and writing when it comes to reading, though fantasy and science fiction are her favorites. She spends most of her free time reading or writing, but she also loves creating covers, drawing or painting, and visiting museums. She is a freelance editor.

I've been writing for eleven years, and Between Gates was the first book that I have been satisfied with when I finished. It needs a lot of editing still and will likely receive a full rewrite sometime in the future, perhaps when I write and release the prequel series I have planned for it. But since then, I have finished many books and have self-published three novels and had two short stories published with an indie publishing press. The short stories are available in Port & Key's anthologies. My group's anthology Glimpses of Time and Magic: A Historical Fantasy Anthology is available on Amazon as a pre-order, so if you enjoy historical fantasy, check that out! We've got nine fantastic stories to share. :)

I like reading fantasy and sci-fi mostly. But, I also devour classics and history.

Email me at if you have suggestions for blog topics you'd like me to cover. Please do not email with read requests. However, I do review both traditionally and indie-published books on the blog if they're fantasy and relatively clean. So, you may send review requests if your book fits those criteria. I won't review if I don't have a review copy most of the time though, so keep that in mind. Thank you!
