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.
I came to Canada at 14 with my parents and, after a few trips back to England and back again, my home is now in southern Ontario, in a place called The White Rose Shire, surrounded by a forest where I write my fantasy stories.
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 my readers. 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 small-town church in Canada (not a real one – honest!), and a short story (pun intended) about a young outcast Dwarf. You can follow my writing progress on my blog and see my imagination go wild on my Pinterest boards. That’s where I gather my inspiration for my scenes. Click on the boards to take you there.
“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” – Stephen GrelletTweet
