Greetings from Colorado...and the realm of Egalion

  • August 30, 2016 12:12 PM PDT

    My name is Ronelle Antoinette and I live in western Colorado with my husband, two cats, and one dog-who-believes-he's-a-person. While I'm a mother to none, I'm an auntie to what feels like a small army...our newest recruit joined us in April 2016. (I will neither confimr nor deny that I Facebook-stalk her mommy and daddy to see every picture of her little smiling face.)

     I was born in Phoenix, AZ and raised in beautiful Colorado with my two younger brothers, who taught me to have a thick skin and a ready smile. They are at least half the reason I find inspiration the way I do and I love them for it. Despite my mother's best efforts, I am NOT an outdoorsy girl; I'd much rather curl up with a good book or play through my favorite video game. (Yup, nerd all the way, right here!)

    ​I'm a caffeine addict, chocoholic, and a hopeless romantic. I've carried on a passionate love affiar with the genre of fantasy since I was old enough to read 'chapter books', but I developed a particular soft spot for romantic fantasy while in my teens. I find inspiratation in hot showers, time with my nieces and nephews, and in random meanderings through mundane places.

    ​I dabbled in creative writing for many years and even considered it as my major in college. (I ended up getting a Bachelor's degree in Counseling Psychology.) The inspiration for the Elemental Trials series was born while I was in a high school creative writing class. It sat, unloved and forgotten, in a binder for years, only to be discoverd while moving into my first apartment. The fire was rekindled and it grew from a single, sophmoric tale to a full-blown series over the next decade. i published the first installment in the series, Errant Spark, in July of 2016. Dream. Come. True.
