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 now is 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 process on my Pinterest boards. That’s where I gather my inspiration for my scenes.
My nonfiction is a collection of workbooks and online 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. The series is called THE FROM-TO METHOD OF WRITING BOOKS and shows you how you can leverage your social media content to write an ebook in as little as ten hours!
“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 Grellet
