My name is Darcie Rian and I reside in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. I met my husband at my sister’s house, while role playing Dungeons & Dragons. I know, shock horror! We met and married within ten months and are now married eighteen plus years . We are very close. He’s my rock and favourite thing in the world. He assures me that I am his but I do think Star Wars is a very close second.
We are very sad, we have no kids or pets. (I’ve successfully killed lavender and mint, two plants that are apparently impossible to kill, I wouldn’t trust me with kids or pets either). I have three nephews and one niece. One nephew and one niece who are now young adults (I refuse to admit this, they are still six and seven in my head). I have another two nephews who are both below ten. I love spending time with them but also really love to hand them back. I seriously don’t know how my sister copes.
I started writing in my late teens, when in my second job as a clerical assistant, an uber efficient secretary started. She was used to being incredibly busy and soon took over doing practically all of the work. Bored out of my mind, I started to write to try and make my day go faster.
Like a lot of authors, I have a ton of stories started but not finished. Some day, I will finish them (ha, who am I trying to kid here)? I finally finished my first story earlier this year and with the encouragement of fellow author Carole Archer, I submitted it to a publishing company. Five months later, it got published.
