Lydhia Marie was born in a small town in Quebec, Canada. She discovered her passion for writing later in life during her last summer as an English student at Bishop’s University. To be honest, she wasn’t much of a reader before she started her degree, but this hate for words transformed into a passion for reading, and then morphed into a need for writing. Strange, but nonetheless true.
After finishing her first draft, she attended a three-week creative writing course at the University of Oxford, where she realized that her first manuscript was very badly written.

I've had the opposite problem though: you know, the one when you just can't stop the ideas from flowing and don't have time to write them down!
What do I do then? I get mad at myself for not always having a pen in my purse--or up my sleeve if I have to.

Doing what you love? But I guess everybody should love their job, right?
No, but really? I love creating new worlds and finding the perfect names for my characters. I can't use a character if their name doesn't fit with their personality. It simply doesn't work like that for me.
It's also great to speak to your characters in your head when you're all alone... or maybe it's just me. Please don't send me to an asylum. (less)

Books I want to read this summer


 

I always say I don’t have enough time to read all my books, and yet I keep buying more and more, just because I intend to read them at one point in my life. Maybe next month, I’ll be in a mood to re-read the entire Harry Potter series. Or maybe I can finish some of the books I started but never finished. It all depends on what is going to happen at that prec...

I laughed out loud more than once -- who am I kidding? -- more than I'd like to admit. I've silently cried. And I've rolled my eyes at one of my favourite fictional characters. Because, let's face it, Harriet still has a lot to learn.

“Or when you’re drunk, your brain doesn’t have the ability to differentiate your feelings from your selves’, which leads you to act impulsively when influenced by your Red-self; like a child, when influenced by your Yellow-self; or to do everything slowly and act like Einstein, when influenced by your Blue-self.
