🌷Hello! I'm Bri: a writer, cosplay enthusiast, cellist and singer, and self-taught graphic designer/illustrator. (Read: I am a busy geek and my quarantine hobby was to start learning to create fan art for my own stories...)
🌷I write about friendship, family, love, loss, mercy, forgiveness, joy and pain. Sometimes that's in the context of magic fantasy worlds, and sometimes it's not.
🌷Current work: The Ársa Series
Book 1: The Way of the Sea - set on an Irish island in 1945 as well as in the magical world of Ársa. [Current word count: 57,838]
🌷Rewrite: The Crowns of Crecidia series
Book 1: Fight - set in the fictional land of Crecidia, this was 14-year-old-me's first attempt at Christian Fiction set in a medieval adventure. (Not fantasy). Currently working on the second draft!
"I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend."
-Faramir (JRR Tolkien, The Two Towers)
