Mary-Jean Harris
I write fantasy and historical fiction, both novels and short stories. You can get some of my short stories on the short stories page. I am now writing the third book in The Soul Wanderers series, and the sequel to Aizai the Forgotten is in the process of publication.
Outside of writing, I am a student in theoretical physics at the University of Victoria in Canada and have a Masters degree from the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Canada. Before that I went to Carleton University in Ottawa where I did physics with a minor in philosophy. I'm planning to be a particle physicist and philosopher, as well as continuing to write fantasy novels.
I love animals and have an adorable miniature poodle and rabbit, and some day (soon, I hope) I want to have a Bernese Mountain Dog. I have traveled to England, Scotland, France, and Peru and hope to travel to many other interesting places with old ruins and castles, and beautiful places to hike. I LOVE The Lord of the Rings, and I love to read fantasy, historical fantasy, and the Classics. I'm also a big kpop fan, as well as a Doctor Who fan...allons-y!
