I am a freelance writer, poet, author, and feminist who lives in British Columbia, Canada.

I am the author of two poetry collections. The first one is Pathways to Illumination, available exclusively at Redmund Productions. My second book, Versions of the Self, is available on Amazon.

Currently, I am sipping coffee and typing her third book, which will be fiction. Stay tuned!

When not writing, I like walking on local trails, relaxing with friends and family, and nibbling on chocolate.

By the time you've written for ten minutes, I bet you there's at least one sentence in there that's a beginning point for a new piece of writing that has good potential.(less)

Majenta Hi, Christy! Thank you for contacting me! Thank you for your answer to the writer's block question, it really makes sense and I hope it's been helping a lot of people and continues to help a lot more! Happy reading, writing, and everything else, and I hope you'll have great weather to enjoy the wonderful scenery of autumn as you work on your fiction book. I definitely encourage you with that! Blessings and peace, have a great week.

Best wishes from Majenta
