At a Glance

I am an introvert who only shows her true colours (a) to her dearest friends and family and (b) through the written word. Even then, I find expressing my deepest thoughts a challenge never to be reckoned. I love reading, writing, hanging out with (above) said friends, and my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I dabble also in songwriting (much), sports (a little), and art (very little). I live in Canada where I have the time of my life being homeschooled alongside several siblings. When I'm not in Canada, which happens often, I'm somewhere else, usually world travelling with my family. Life is good!

As a Green Ember Fan

I discovered The Green Ember during Christmas, 2017 (a few weeks prior to the release of Ember Rising). My mother brought it home as a read-aloud for over the holidays. At first, I was reluctant. But the moment she opened the book and read those words, "My place beside you, my blood for yours. Till the Green Ember rises or the end of the world!" everything changed. I distinctly remember thinking, what have I just stepped into, and will I ever escape? Thankfully, I have not. The more we read, the more I was trapped, and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. My fanship escalated at our reading of Ember Rising during my family's trip to Israel and Russia. The allegory of the Mended Wood and Christ's return was burning in my heart. My faith came alive. I could not (and still cannot) think of the quote, "I know it's true, for when I read these words, my heart is on fire," without crying. The words that I read over and over again (mainly during my 25 readings of Ember Rising) changed my life. I long for the return of my King, Jesus Christ, just as I saw the rabbits in Green Ember long for the Mended Wood. I took up the fight we as Christian are called to engage in because Green Ember reminded me of the spiritual battle our world is locked in. After that, God revealed to me what my calling is...

As an Author

The Green Ember series inspired my faith like nothing else. The sheer passion that was planted in my heart was communicated to me through one of the best mediums for change ever created, the story. I have always loved stories. I wrote my first (albeit poor) book at age six. From there, I went on to writing longer books. Eventually, when I was nine, I wrote a 12,000-word novella. After that, starting when I was ten, I spent two years writing and editing a 90,000+ word novel. Now, I am a published author who believes the only way to go is up. But not for a moment will I take credit for my work! God is the provider of all inspiration and he alone is the greatest author. I will only do my best to serve him, as others in my trade have done...
