Bethany Bedard was born and raised in British Columbia, where she currently resides with her partner and their pet rats. A fan of the fantasy genre, Bethany immersed herself in the genera that fueled her passion for both writing and gaming. An avid fan of role-playing games, Bethany expands her love of geek culture by fully embracing the fantasy world that inspires pop and gaming culture. Bethany’s desire to lift female voices in her novels, adds a unique twist in the overly masculine focus of fantasy fiction. Inspired by both current geek culture and heavy metal, Bethany shows us that women are not defined by any boundaries placed on them by society.
