About the author:
Audrey Austin was born and raised by her parents in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She often describes herself as one who tends to do everything backward. At a very early age she married and before long her two daughters arrived. Having only a high school education she waited until her children were grown before going back to school. She attended University of Toronto and later graduated from Transformational Arts College. She has lived in Toronto & its suburbs; Prince Edward Island and in New Zealand. She has enjoyed other international travel but only as a tourist in countries such as Thailand; Korea; Bahamas; Bermuda; Columbia, Puno and Cartagena in South America. She has held several jobs throughout her life but basically she held the positions of legal transcriptionist; teacher and psychospiritual practitioner in private practice. She always wanted to write and she did write in a small way as a hobby but she never made any attempt at publication. It was not until she retired at an uncertain age that she finally made the promise to herself that she would fulfill her dream of being an author. Since that day she has worked very hard though she says it does not feel like work. She loves creative writing and how can something one loves so much be classified as work? She has written novels, novellas, short stories, some of which are in anthologies, and some, like Daniel, which dare to stand alone. Drawing on her experience as a teacher/therapist she put together what is so far her only book on personal growth. She states that she has no diplomas or degrees in creative writing. She has only the imagination and the desire to allow the wonderful characters she creates the freedom to express and the time to tell their stories. She does her best to keep up with the characters and she hopes you will enjoy what she writes."
