In a few words: I am a re-inspired writer.
Right now, I’m a recent graduate of the Print Futures Program from Douglas College, where all the professional writers come from… Well, they ought to.
I lived all my childhood life in one house in the Greater Vancouver Area of BC. When I graduated high school, I jumped into an arts college to learn classic animation. Unsatisfied with simply drawing and animating cartoons, I ended up in the computer graphics program for game art.
Once that program was done, I skipped town and moved out for the first time in search of a better job. I moved into an old half-house rental with a boyfriend–all the way across the country in Montreal. I stayed for two years until deciding, there really wasn’t any opportunities for an English girl at all in the French city.
Back in BC I landed. Three years of working limbo later, I had the epiphany to be an editor. So here I am, just graduated and really liking how life has turned out.
I’ve been a story-teller and an avid story-listener for all my life. Whether I was writing my own stories in notebooks or I was playing a story through video games and role-playing games. Stories have been constant through my ever-shifting life.
So, with that in mind, I’ve decided to team up with a friend, write stories and get our stuff published.
Hi, my name is Jo.
If you recognize the titles of the books in the header… I know who you are. We’ve all been staring at those books too much in the past year. And yes, the Oxford Dictionary is there too – it’s behind my head.
By the simplest means, the easiest would be to leave a comment on any of the posts.
Another way is to send me a tweet, @azhwi.
If you wish to email me, jo (at) joannayuen.com.
Now that you know me, how about yourself? I’d be absolutely tickled pink to find out just who are my readers. Give me a hint in the commentary here? Please? Thank you!
