Biography

Freya doesn’t write about imaginary worlds; she writes about imaginative ones. These are worlds that could be real in a parallel universe or another time dimension. She does not promote escapism; instead she takes her readers into a refreshing place so that they return to their normal lives feeling strengthened and renewed.

A cancer survivor, Freya is inspired by her garden, a variety of music and beautifully written books. She is the author of six books at Amazon UK and Amazon US, and her quarterly newsletter features serialised short stories about her heroine, Dracomagan.

Freya is currently working undercover in the hospitality industry. She is doing this in order to study and understand Humans in order to be able to complete her series, The Kaerling. With each day that passes she is more and more convinced that she is an alien trapped in a human body but has no idea where her home world is. She has no plans to write about the hospitality industry itself; her current “lifestyle” is merely a way of researching characters for The Kaerling.

She blogs regularly at www.dragonscaleclippings.wordpress.com and www.purehaiku.wordpress.com
