About Shereen Vedam

MY PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE

"Sometimes the unattainable can, in fact, be obtained."

My name is Shereen Vedam and I was born on a tiny paradise island called Ceylon, later renamed Sri Lanka.

My mother was a grade school teacher by day, and by night became a put-upon mom of a wandering child. My father traveled around the world looking for a walkie-talkie doll for a child who loved to do both.

My family moved me to Canada in the hopes of satisfying my wanderlust and teaching me restraint, but all too soon I moved across the country in search of brand new adventures.

I finally landed on Vancouver Island, a new paradise all my own, filled with people and pets and plants (including an awesome giant Weeping Sequoia) that nurture my love of reading, writing and dreaming.

Inspired in the past by outstanding fantasy authors such as Andre Norton, Anne McCaffrey, and Terry Brooks, I now devour books by Martha WellsTerry Pratchett, and Hilari Bell.
