I’m a science fiction and fantasy addict from Western Canada. In addition to writing and working, I am in my last year of my bachelor’s degree in Pacific and Asian Studies, love history, and never got over that “horse phase” that girls seem to get.
I spent a year studying Mandarin Chinese in South-West China, living in a one-room dorm at Yunnan Normal University (yes, “normal.” This particular bit of Chinese doesn’t translate well into English, but is fairly normal among Chinese universities. Yunnan University, without the “normal,” is an entirely different school and is located practically across the street from Yunnan Normal. Not confusing at all.) in Kunming, the City of Eternal Spring.
It was pretty chill there.
Since returning to Canada to finish off my degree, I have moved to Taiwan to teach English, write books, and have a good time.
