About the Author
Hello, I’m Noelle. One of the aspects of writing and reading I love the most are the characters that live within the pages. We have the opportunities, both as writers and readers, to experience people who are better than ourselves. Flawed still, but people who go against all odds, perhaps too great for us in real life to aspire to. They speak grander, fight against magical forces and live in a place where imagination and dreams can thrive. This is why I write Fantasy. Within my characters I find the strength and hope for a better tomorrow, one that can be more fantastical and beyond reality. It’s these characters that I wish to write, and these journeys I want to take my reader’s on.
I’ve been writing my trilogy, The Lost Skills, for the past three years. The original idea came to me back in high school where I had the support of many of my English teachers to continue writing the book. However, I realized that in order to write a good book, I needed to have experienced life more. I needed to lose someone close. I needed to have my heartbroken. I needed to know what it was like to really love someone, and what it means to be loved. So, I put my book away and came back to it eight years later. I feel that I can instill my life experiences into my characters now and really understand them.
I now feel I have the discipline, experience and imagination needed to bring the books to publication. For now, this is my records to publication and my writing process. My only wish is to write books that take people on a journey, and feel that perhaps they have a friend and someone to aspire to, within the pages.
Other than writing, I’m a Colorado native. I live in the mountains with my fiance, two border collies and two cats, and spend most of my free time hiking, creating art or taking photographs of my dogs for their Instagram account.
