My Author Journey
On a dare, I registered for National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, an annual 30-day challenge to write a 50,000-word story. Who knew that's what it would take to get me to write? After years of procrastination and writer's block, words appeared on the page.
At the end of the month, I had written my very first book. After months of painful editing, my debut novel, The Ancestors' Key, was published in March 2020, just as COVID hit Quebec, Canada.
The story wasn't finished! I registered for Camp NaNoWriMo, a less structured event held twice yearly, in April and July. While working on the audiobook for The Ancestors’ Key, I began its compelling sequel, The Academy, which was published in June 2020.
July saw me writing the third book, The Time Walker, in what was now called The Evers Series, which was published in August 2020. Book Four, The World Jumper, and the series' conclusion were the focus of my NaNoWriMo project for that year’s coming November. It was released in December 2020.
In 2021, I wrote a standalone called Clarity Castle and a short story anthology called What Happens Next? Readers Decide Which Story Becomes a Book. Both of these books are available on audio.
I also started a series of Picture Books for kids 3 to 7 called Fairy Grandmother. They are available in English, French, Spanish, German, and Italian. The French and English audiobook versions, read by me, are available for free on the publisher's website.
In 2022, I wrote and published a new series within the same fantastical universe as The Evers Series called the Blood Magick Trilogy. I also published four Ghost Stories and a holiday novella in the Holiday Shifters series.
In 2023, I wrote and published a new YA Epic Fantasy series called Defenders of the Realm. The series features witches and dragons and comprises 5 fantasy adventure books, a prequel, and 4 fantasy romance novellas.
