The hardest part of introducing me to you is really where do I begin? I could start with my birth in Nova Scotia, as it a little unusual in that I was born on a Friday the thirteenth while my mom was under hypnosis. The hypnosis was part of a trial project to see if it could be used as an alternative to drugs for the pain. My mom was chosen for the fact that she can be hypnotized very easily. It is almost so easy that we have to keep her away from people with pocket watches.
Now that you know a little about my strange birth we should probably focus on how I ended up becoming an author. I had always dreamed of writing books from about the age that I could first read. I became passionate about reading as it was the one activity where having your head in the clouds was actually encouraged. I tended to daydream a fair amount growing up which meant that I always had stories playing out in my mind.
I began to write when I was young using pen and paper and a lot of printing. I preferred printing to handwriting because it looked more like the print in books. I was not a fan of handwriting in school and readily switched back to printing as soon as the teachers let me. By the time I was in high school, I'll be willing to bet that I was the fastest printer in the school. The downside to this is that I doubt I could actually handwrite very much of anything without it being a huge mess.
There are many stories floating around my head hoping for the chance to get out and be shared with anyone who wants to read them. The Daughter of Man was the first to get out and is an introduction to my personal Candace-verse where all of these stories will take place. I love the idea of characters crossing over and a general sense of knowing the universe that the characters are set in. In addition to the first book, there are two more on the way.
Honestly, there is a lot more to know about me and most of that will come out of my blog as I do like to post a personal story from time to time. I will add some links below to any of my blog posts that are snapshots from my past for your getting to know me convenience.
The Daughter of Man is also available to borrow via Amazon Prime!
