I am a dark fantasy indie author and illustrator who writes under Kwyn Marie and illustrates under Shanda Nelson. The Wellspring Dragons series is my first publishing endeavor, and I run two bi-weekly dark fantasy serials, Lapis of Nicodem and Evenacht, at World Anvil.
I play the cello, tin whistle, recorder, and synths. I love goth/industrial music and club when I'm able.
I am a full-time author/illustrator with degrees in English, Art History, and a Masters of Library and Information Science.
