About The Author

JF Garrard got into writing through reading comic books and watching movies as an escape from her mundane childhood in Toronto, Canada.  Writing has always been something she wanted to do although she was almost tossed out of her Catholic all girls high school writing club for writing dark and weird stories.  She decided to write a novel after finding out that a friend self-published a book, so she challenged herself to do the same.  She is a germaphobe with a Nuclear Medicine background and holds a MBA in Strategy/Marketing.  She volunteers annually at different Sci-Fi/Japanese Animation conventions for fun.
