Welcome to my first #FeatureFriday, where I introduce you to creatives and artists I love. We’re starting off, of course, with my lovely Hotel Fen co-author, Meri Benson!
I met her in a writing community around two and a half years ago, where we randomly collaborated to write a short piece to the prompt ‘childhood friends to lovers.’ (We found out very quickly that we’re both suckers for that trope.) Our styles and strengths and weaknesses complemented each other’s very well, so we began to work on more shorts and prompts, just for fun really, until I started contemplating the idea of collaborating on a story with her.
Fast-forward to October 2020, when nearly every author I knew was gearing up for NaNoWriMo. I have never managed NaNo because of my day job’s demands, but I thought that, maybe, she would be okay to do a mini NaNo with me… and she agreed!
We released Hotel Fen last August. 🥳
Prior to our novel, she’s already published several short stories, spanning a myriad of genres, on Amazon — all of which you can check out here.
Her short “Lingering Ice” was also just recently published in Flora Fiction‘s 2021 fall issue.
Grab a copy of Hotel Fen, an urban fantasy novel by Meri Benson and Marie Sinadjan, from your favorite ebook and print store. Just in time for the spooky season!
