Roselle Lim was born in the Philippines and immigrated to Canada as a child. She lived in north Scarborough in a diverse, Asian neighbourhood.

She found her love of writing by listening to her lola (paternal grandmother's) stories about Filipino folktales. Growing up in a household where Chinese superstition mingled with Filipino Catholicism, she devoured books about mythology, which shaped the fantasies in her novels.

An artist by nature, she considers writing as "painting with words."

If it’s something that excites them, I hone the logline and flesh it out to a pitch/blurb. I then run it by my agent before it even gets to my editor. It has to be something compelling and unique and, most important, makes me thrilled to write the book.(less)
