PJ Friel – Fantasy Artist & Fantasy Fiction Writer
Living in a small village was peaceful–for the bedraggled Mr. and Mrs. Friel, parents of eight children. For their daughter PJ, the village of Gnadenhutten was a study in boredom. Her only excitement was found in skulking around the old graveyard at midnight with her friends and badgering the librarians at the local library. When told she wasn’t allowed to read adult romance (at the age of twelve), PJ decided to use the mail order library instead.
Sirena the Sea Siren sailed into her life (courtesy of Fern Michaels) and a respect for bold, gutsy women was born.
PJ now writes about sword wielding, ass kicking, willful, sometimes wanton women and the men who are strong enough to love them. Her artwork reflects the juxtaposition of sensuality and strength in women. When she’s not spending time with her son and his evil parakeet or hanging out on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest, PJ lives in her own fantasy world where women are as likely to poke you with a sword as kiss you.
PJ has one short story “The Needing” published in the “Death Sparkles Anthology.”
She is working on a fantasy series with a Norse Mythology background. The first book will be published in 2016 (Odin willing).
