My novels are futuristic, adventure fantasies geared to teenagers and young adults. The Falcon Chronicles series has two current themes. One is climate change, the other is coming-of-age, focusing on young women.
A love of reading is mandatory for a writer. For me the writing part came later. I completed my first unpublished romance novel in 2010, then took a break. A few years on, influenced by the themes in series such as The Hunger Games and Divergent, I revisited writing. My desire was to create a strong relatable heroine and follow her journey into the responsibilities of adulthood in a futuristic, dystopian world. What followed was the adventurous story of Brynna Bokk and her friends.
My education definitely influences my stories. I have a degree in psychology and women’s studies, and a diploma in fine arts—all things I love to weave into my books.
I reside on the beautiful west coast of Canada, with my author husband, so my interest in maintaining a clean environment is a given. I hope we can protect our planet, perhaps not in the way Brynna Bokk does, but with equal passion and responsibility.
