Hey there! Thanks for dropping by.

I write some modern paranormal adventure. I love action scenes. I'm an active member of @LOL-35, which is a great discussion group for women writers 35 and older. DM me for the link if that sounds like you, too. Part of "Pyre" appears in the Leading Ladies Anthology, edited by @shalonsims and @linahanson -- they're both fantastic people to know on Wattpad.

I read widely and collect books, including science fiction, fantasy, literature, Canadian literature and some random stuff (e.g., Into Thin Air on the non-fiction side of my book shelf or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on the crime/mystery/thriller side, neither of which are my usual bag).

Influences? Tolkien (who isn't influenced by him?), Guy Gavriel Kay, Nalo Hopkinson, Ursula Le Guin, Octavia Butler, Connie Willis, Thomas King, Janette Turner Hospital, Christopher Marlowe, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Eden Robinson, Anne McCaffrey, Douglas Coupland, Margaret Atwood, Peter S. Beagle, Lorna Crozier and William Gibson. Ping me if you want suggestions for which of their works to start with.

I wrote a novel in under 15 months on Wattpad using my phone, primarily while commuting. I'm currently editing the book in partnership with my real-world alpha readers and plan to start posting it soon (with chapter art, so stay tuned).

If you write, I recommend Brene Brown's Daring Greatly. Her book combined with my experiences in crowdfunding drastically changed my approach to writing. I'm also partial to Liz Gilbert's books on creativity and writing life.
