Author laurie varga drinking tea with mittensLet’s be honest here and write this in the first person.

I grew up in Calgary where it is both sunny and freezing cold at the same time. After art college I traded the mountains for the rich fall colours of Ontario. They do have some hills here they call “mountains” but it’s not the same.

When I’m not designing or writing I’m usually making something, taking pictures or reading. Mostly psychology related stuff – a subject that heavily influences both my characters and plotlines as well as my non-fiction work. When I have time I enjoy long walks, except in the pouring rain because it sucks being wet.

As a quiet introvert I may appear cold and detached initially but I’m generally a kind person hiding behind a mug and the colour black.
