I reside in Canada with my husband and two adorably rebellious children. Urban Fantasy is my favorite genre to write but I enjoy reading Horror, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and anything with great antiheroes, cunning villains, and flawed characters.

Into the Veil, Through the Gloom, and Across the Blood Red River complete my Veilwalker Trilogy, and I’m currently working on more magical world shenanigans in my next series: The Helios Chronicles.

Hi Raquel! Thanks for the question:)
I would absolutely love my books translated in other languages. Having them out there for everyone to read is the dream after all. But self-publishing is far from a lucrative business plan. It allows me the freedom to maintain control over my work. I don't have to worry about deadlines, genre trends, popularity, or what’s currently making money. I simply write what I enjoy and hope others are entertained. But it also ensures the lack of means to properly market, distribute, and translate.
So, while it is not a viable option for now, I'll be ecstatic if the opportunity ever presents in the future.

W.J. Lennox
W.J. Lennox is on page 26 of 326 of The World of Ice & Fire: Aah! So now I know why Arya was so fascinated by legend of Princess Nymeria that she named her wolf after her. What a gutsy, resilient woman! Arya certainly shares some of her qualities, but she's also not that dissimilar to another strong female character I love - the mother of dragons herself!
