JF Garrard is the President of Dark Helix Press, an Indie publisher of Multicultural Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Raw Non-Fiction. She got into writing through reading comic books and watching movies as an escape from her mundane childhood in Toronto. Writing has always been something she wanted to do although she was almost tossed out of her Catholic all girls high school writing club for writing dark and weird stories. She is a germaphobe with a Nuclear Medicine background and holds a MBA in Strategy & Marketing.
At Anime North she will be hosting a party for the book launch of "The Undead Sorceress", Book 1 of the International House of Vampire series. Concept art for the series is on her website, jfgarrard.com. Find her on Twitter @JFGarrard and Facebook page, JF Garrard.
