Welcome to this week's Author of the Week, I spoke to C.B Gabriel about her debut novel and what plans she has next. Read on to find out more!
Tell me a little about yourself, where do you live, family, hobbies!
I live in Kingston, Ontario, and when I'm not writing, I spend most of my time working as a canine massage practitioner. My 'woof' babies, Molly, a beagle-dachshund mix, and Talullah, a hound, both love their weekly massages! I'm also a yoga teacher and a visual artist. I love to lie down on the couch in front of the television with my sketchbook and marker, and then I just let the art flow. Of course, I spend a lot of time with my wonderful boyfriend, and much to his chagrin, he listens to me sing (badly!)
I'm sending him some earplugs! What got you into writing?
I never thought I would become a writer. I originally planned on law school, so I finished my B.A. Hons. in Classical Studies at Queen's University in 2009. However, in 2013, I survived a very serious illness, and I found that as soon as I put the pen to the paper, I just couldn't stop. I found the writing process so therapeutic I eventually joined a formal writers' group, and then I was fortunate enough to create two novels. Trey & Kate is my debut published novel.
