Jocelyn is a Canadian author juggling life as a writer, publisher, and a mother, all while living with MS.
She has always had a passion for reading and writing, drafting her own episodes of her favorite T.V. shows like Seaquest—yes, Seaquest, does anyone even remember that show—and various other short stories about ghosts, witches, and other supernatural creatures.
Jocelyn grew up reading fantasy and horror novels from R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, Dean Koontz, John Saul, Anne Rice, and Stephen King; these authors shaped her love for darker fantasy. Currently, she’s into Kelley Armstrong, Chevy Stevens, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Her all-time favorite stories involve witches and magic.
Melhara is her first published novel with two more installments to come for this series. The inspiration for Melhara started out as a recurring dream and a desire to change her life and fight for a better one.
Jocelyn has two sons, ten years apart that keep her busy. The oldest is extremely talkative, has a wild imagination and a strong personality. He is also full of interesting tales and maybe one day he will write them down to share with the world—although he currently hates reading, so in the meantime, she will weave the interesting bits into her work. The youngest never stops moving even when he is eating.
She enjoys staying up late reading or watching B-budget fantasy and horror movies for inspiration then goes to sleep dreaming of dark creatures and magical worlds.
