Aspasía wrote her first short story at the age of six (a dark tale about a deadly flower) and illustrated it with a pink highlighter. She no longer does illustrations but she’s been writing stories ever since. She lives in Toronto with her partner in crime, three cats, a plethora of plants, and a Disney movie’s worth of wildlife in the yard. Her dark fantasy novel Love Lies Bleeding is now available in paperback and on Kindle. She is currently working on her next book.

Aspasía supports many causes, particularly any that involve helping animals. Some of her favourite charities include the OSPCA, Toronto Wildlife Centre, SafePet Ottawa, Big Cat Rescue, Black Cat Rescue, and FLAP Canada. She’s also a member of the Toronto Botanical Garden and the Toronto Zoo.
