Writer, Dreamer, Knitter. Not necessarily at the same time. Phoenix Emrys began her writing career at age seven when she penned her first opus, a supernatural thriller about a green porcelain horse and her favorite Barbie. She continued to write vociferously into her twenties, producing several fantasy tales featuring two male characters of the intensely bonded, brothers-in-arms variety. The book she slaved over and submitted for publication utterly failed to impress, whereupon she chucked the writing and got on with her life. In 1999 her first computer and a shiny new obsession for two hot guys in a certain sci fi series led her into the world of fan fiction, where she discovered two hot guys who really liked each other could do way more than hug... a lot. Not only did this exciting new arena rekindle her atrophied desire to write, but the slash revelation inspired her to significantly expand her literary horizons. Ahem. Ten years of fan fic writing ensued. During which she wrote—a lot—and learned some too. Phoenix is a Canadian south paw currently residing in beautiful British Columbia with her daughter, the present love of her life Merlin, a canine Papillion charmer that's totally captured her heart, as well as a cuddly but completely psycho Siamese kitty that daily tests her patience. She lives to knit and write happily-ever-afters for hot guys in love.
