Fantasy Author, Early Riser, Impossible Dream Chaser.

Also, I’m sometimes a dabbler in non-fiction writing.

I guess that makes me a multi-genre writer?

I live in Canada with my husband. When not working on my writing, I enjoy running, reading, and long walks. Most evenings, you can find me relaxing on the couch watching television - assuming I haven't fallen asleep.
