message 14: by Kate (new)

Kate Sherwood (Kate_Sherwood) | 1 comments Hi, guys! I'm Kate Sherwood - I write mostly m/m romance, but I've got a couple m/f romances, too. Details are at my website, www.katesherwoodbooks.com

I've lived in Canada all my life - grew up in Ontario, then lived in Montreal, then Vancouver, and now I'm back in Southern Ontario. Most of my books are set in Canada, too. My first ones were set in the States, but then I started writing things closer to home and now I'm hooked. It's so much easier to put in those authentic details that make stories feel real!

I'm looking forward to meeting fellow Canadian book lovers!

Anna Hi guys, I'm all the way north in Quebec City. I write YA fantasy with Japanese fox shapeshifters.

I live in Northern Ontario closer to the Manitoba border well 5 hours away. Life in a small northern Ontario town - no bookstore, one grocery store and I have to drive either 4 hours to Thunder Bay, or 5 hrs to Winnipeg. Oh and we just got a Tim Hortons 2 months ago. Closet Walmart is one hour away. lol

But the bonus is it takes me 3 minutes to get to work.


message 18: by Abby (new)

Abby  | 1 comments Hey there! I live in Toronto ON. Grew up in Bradford but move to T.O. when I was 10 and been here ever since. I love reading Paranormal Romance (ESPECIALLY about vamps and shifters) but I'll occasionally read a contemporary romance... People have asked me before why I don't read stuff like things based on actual events... I live real life... Why on earth would I want to read about it?

message 20: by Sue (new)

Sue (coccotoro) | 6 comments Hi Everyone. I live in Toronto with my husband and our 2 Labs. (our babies). I have my own business and work from home on the internet, with my 2 babies beside me. I love to read and enjoy reading mystery, suspense, crime and psychological thrillers. I also read romance novels. It's a rainy weekend in Toronto, so it is great for reading. Take care everyone, and enjoy your weekend.

message 22: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie Andrassy (Stephanie_Andrassy) | 5 comments Hello All. Thanks for the invite Tana! :) I was born in northern Ontario (Blind River), but have lived in southern Ontario in a few places since a young child - including the teeny town of Bradford during my teens. I had to mention that because I missed Abby by only a couple of years it seems, and it is such a small place. Attended U of Guelph and now live between Toronto and London. I write Romance - dramatic/suspenseful fantasy and paranormal versus lighter beach reads - but do have some contemporary chick lit floating in my brain that will eventually morph into some published stories down the road. I read almost anything - except for creepy, scary, horrific tales. Life is a learning experience, and as long as I'm learning and experiencing new things - I'm happy. :) Have a super fantastic weekend!

K.D. Mclean (kdmclean) | 1 comments Hi Everyone!
I'm K.D. McLean in Canada's first capital city - Kingston. There's an interesting fact for you. Kingston is not just the home of most of the prison's in the country.

I write romance novels containing some erotica. I've published two books in a series, Tales of Pandora, which is a sex club in Toronto (bet you Torontonians have never heard of it, which makes sense since it's fictitious)

Here is my blogspot kdmcleanauthor.blogspot.ca
Drop by and leave a comment. Love to hear from you.

Glad that there is a Canadian group on Goodreads!!

From Montreal too, in love with books ever since I read 'Le Petit Prince', and that was a long time ago. Since then, I had Harry Potter, Dirk Pitt, Amelia Peabody, Gray Pierce... Okay, I'll shut up now.
