bring fantasy to life...


USA Today Bestselling author, W.J. May grew up in the fruit belt of

Ontario - St. Catharines. Crazy-happy childhood, she’s always had a vivid imagination and loads of energy.

The youngest of six -- four older brothers, and a sister -- taught her at a young age to be competitive in all aspects of life.

At sixteen, she began competing in athletics (track and field) and before she turned seventeen, she was representing Canada in high jump. She continued to compete, breaking Canada's JR High Jump record (1.92m - 6' 3 1/2" for those metric-ly challenged). She attended University of Toronto, and Kansas State University - winning CIAU's and becoming All-American 6x - NCAA Indoors Runner Up + more.

But you're not interested in her athletic career - unless of course you're curious to know she stands 1.70m (5'7") and has jumped +20cm over her head on more than one occasion. She's represented Canada at the World Championships, World Jrs., won Francophone Games, been all over the world and loved every minute of every competition. From the grueling workouts, the crazy weights she lifted, the days she thought her lungs were going to spit out of her mouth for lack of oxygen, the travelling and the opportunity to read - her favourite past time.

Life continued with her husband (a distance runner from Liverpool, UK, who she met at KSU) and then their first, second and finally third child. Their house became full of more imagination and stories.

After her father passed away in 2009, from a six-year battle with cancer (which she still believes he won the fight against), she began to write again. A passion she'd loved for years, but realized life was too short to keep putting it off.

She wrote RAE OF HOPE, the first book in the Chronicles of Kerrigan series, which became an international success and the series has continued into 12 books, plus sub-series, twisted plots and more (over 50 books and counting now!!)  

May loves fantasy, paranormal and maybe the odd twist of something darker, something sweeter and something just off the charts.

When she’s not writing or reading, she’s either hanging with her kids, shopping, watching movies, into sports, or plotting the next story in her head.
