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.
When PJ isn’t terrorizing the highways of Ohio in her red, mid-life crisis, sports car or crunching numbers in Excel spreadsheets, she’s writing about sword-wielding, ass-kicking, willful, sometimes wanton women and the men who are strong enough to love them.
Her hobbies include reading and creating artwork that reflects the juxtaposition of sensuality and strength in women that she so admires.
PJ has one short story “The Needing” published in the “Death Sparkles Anthology.”
She is working on a paranormal romance series with a Norse Mythology background. The first book – A Twist of Wyrd – will be published in January 2018.
