Hello, I’m Lynne Collier, writer of poetry and speculative fiction/fantasy. 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.
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 memoir about raising a child with autism.
I recently published a speculative fiction novel about lies and deception in a small Canadian town 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 also write for several online publications through Medium where my articles are often personal stories of my life with God and my gardens.
“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
