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 a bi-weekly dark fantasy serial, Lapis of Nicodem, 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.
