About Phaedra Weldon
Phaedra's imagination and love of television and movie characters often rewarded her with strange looks at school. Her love of science fiction and fantasy blossomed when her cousin Cyndy gave her Anne McCaffrey's "Dragon Flight" for her twelfth birthday.
Other interests are manga, anime, gaming, hiking, waterfalls and spending time with her daughter and too many hours in Final Fantasy XIV.
Her series are The Eldritch Files, The Grimoire Chronicles and the Cast In Shadow Series, (now under the name Phaedra Weldon). There is also the Castle Falls Cozy Paranormal Series, the Women's Paranormal Fiction series named Ravenwood Hills, and she has just started her first Epic Fantasy duology (depending on how it goes, it might become longer).
She is also working on her first non-fiction book, The Writer's Garden, which has become a therapeutic journey into ideas, words, burnout and recovery. She's testing it out on her blog under The Writer's Garden.
