The Authors

M Negrijn

M Negrijn is a former archaeologist and interpreter. She’s fascinated by old things and loves knitting, lace tatting and any other fabric arts she can procrastinate with. She’s been writing for over thirty years, focusing on how people find connection and even fall in love.

She escapes reality on her bikes and through reading too many books to list anywhere. She continues to write because she must. M Negrijn lives in Canada with her husband and a cat that’s too smart for her own good.

She works as a freelance editor and has degrees in Archaeology and certificates in Heritage Interpretation and Technical Writing. She was born in Newfoundland and Labrador and currently resides in Ontario.
