JF Garrard got into writing through reading comic books and watching movies as an escape from her mundane childhood in Toronto, Canada. 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. Her latest book, The Literary Elephant, is a step-by-step guide to self-publishing. She is a germaphobe with a Nuclear Medicine background and holds a MBA in Strategy and Marketing. She volunteers annually at different Sci-Fi/Japanese Animation conventions for fun.
