Hi everyone! Thanks for joining me!
This is my very first venture in, well, many things. Website building, writing a book that I intend to publish (and creating a series to boot), my journey through self-publishing and book marketing. Just... everything! I'm excited to grow and learn and have you all come along for the ride.
I live in a small-ish city in Northern Ontario, Canada. I've lived here my whole life and couldn't picture myself anywhere else. I'm married to the love of my life and my best friend, Mike, and have two amazing step-kids, Joel and Melanie. Both are teenagers... enough said. When I'm not writing, I can be found hanging out online with my pals, watching movies with my family, or reading. Sometimes I'll pick up a crochet hook and try and make something worth using, but those masterpieces are few and far between.
Like many author bios you'll read, I've been writing most of my life. I started out with short stories when I was around 10, then tried my hand at poetry in my late teens. In my early twenties, I read nothing but chick-lit, so I wrote a coming-of-age story about a young girl who was basically a mirror image of myself. It remains hidden in a Word doc somewhere (I think I printed it too...), unedited and unpolished. Maybe someday I'll pull her out and laugh at how terrible it is.
At the beginning of 2021, I began writing my very first urban fantasy book: the one I would finally publish. The deeper into it I got, the more I realized that it would be a great series, and it was settled. I would turn my first fantasy novel into a series!
