Bio:
I'm an epic-fantasy author who resides in Manitoba (Canada), surrounded by my cats, books, video games, and my trusty laptop. Although that might sound like the perfect recipe for a typical author, I absolutely love the outdoors as well, and I'm a huge environmentalist who's working towards making the planet healthier.
My interests:
Besides what's written in my bio, I enjoy reading, artsy stuff (like drawing, painting, sculpting, etc.), music, and country/farm life. I also love pen palling and helping people out, so feel free to send me a message if you want to chat or have any questions about writing/publishing!
About my completed projects:
Dragon's Myth, published in 2012 (retired). Dragons' Myth (second edition), published in 2016 after a major edit, is an epic-fantasy about a shy high school girl named Aura who learns that Earth is not the only habitable planet in the universe, and not the one she is destined to save. A different world is on the verge of collapse, ravaged for thousands of years by evil, betrayal, and death. Nature has withered away, leaving the planet barren and the inhabitants dying of starvation. In order to save this foreign world, Aura must realize what it means to be chosen.

The publication of my second novel (the sequel to my debut, Dragons' Myth).
