My Bio

Hello, I’m Lynne Collier, writer of fantasy and speculative fiction. I was born in West Yorkshire England so you may notice a slight accent in my blog posts once in a while.

My home now is in southern Ontario surrounded by a forest where I write my fantasy stories. I live there with my very patient husband, Stephen, and a quirky cat named Smokey. That’s me at a Middle Earth party in my Wood Elf costume.

I mostly blog about the process of writing fantasy and fiction stories, with the odd personal reflection when I think something may be of interest to you too. My writing career started with a gardening column in a web magazine in 2010. From there I was encouraged by friends and colleagues to write my autobiography about raising a child with autism.

I’m currently writing a speculative fiction novel about lies and deception in a Canadian small-town church, and a short story (pun intended) about a young outcast Dwarf. You can follow my writing process on my Pinterest boards. That’s where I gather my inspiration for my scenes.

My nonfiction is a collection of workbooks and courses to help new authors find their voice and navigate the world of creative fiction. You can find my workbooks and courses on Amazon, Teachable and Etsy.

Anything else you want to know about my writing? Drop me a comment 🙂

Blessings galore,

Lynne Singature
