About Me


 

 Hello! I'm Emily. 

I have yellow hair, green eyes, and the resting face of a serial killer. I'm that quiet girl in the corner who is quite possibly insane or at the very least a little weird. 

I am a 20 year old (emphasis on OLD cause 20, wow) INFJ with a creative urge channeled mainly through writing, art and photography. I am a lover of horses and mountains, obsessed with Tolkien, Marvel and misc. fictional worlds. 

I write books. Fantasy, fairy-tale, dystopia, contemporary...basically anything that catches my fancy and helps me to delve into the tragedies and glories of the human condition.

I'm a sucker for angst and am the kind of writer who puts my characters through everything short of hell to draw it out. I have been accused of being sadistic (accusations never truly confirmed)

I was born and have lived in a close-knit farming community of rural Alberta, Canada all my life, until August 2017 when I married and moved in with my favorite guy into the city. I was homeschooled from kindergarten through grade 12 with a brief stint in public school for three years. After graduation in 2015, I started a Creative Writing course through the University of Calgary and obtained my certificate in June, 2017. I am currently enrolled (as of September 2017) in Red-Deer College's Continuing Education Digital Photography program and hope to graduate spring of 2019.

 I am a tomboy and country girl through and through but my overactive imagination and restless spirit are leading me out of the womb-like world I know into the much bigger world beyond. 

Aside from writing, I also love to read, draw or paint, take photos, ride horses, go hiking in the Rockies, run around barefoot, climb trees, sing, line-dance with fellow homeschoolers at various family/community functions and fangirl about my favorite things. 

I might just be obsessed with Tolkien, horses, junk food, exploring, buying books, comic characters, collecting music from my favorite bands, creating worlds, photo-editing and a great too many other things. It's a little bit disturbing.

I believe in an amazing Creator, a loving God who gave his life for mine. 

Thank you for visiting me as I blog about my writing journey! Take a moment if you can to stop and leave a comment - I want to get to know you. I am always curious to meet fellow writers and bloggers and learn from their experiences.

    I'm pretty much a tomboy. My eyes are blue not green (I absolutely loove green eyes though), but that doesn't mean we aren't twins. And, I can't say that I'm getting married, but congratulations! :D

    1. Awesomesauce!! Haha, that's all so cool. Climbing trees is honestly the best and more people should be doing it. Trees were meant to be climbed.
      Thank you so much - I am quite excited!
