Coryl, like “coral reef,” is a writer and artist living in Canada. She graduated from the University of Windsor in 2017 with a BA in Spanish Language, English Literature, and Creative Writing. In May 2019, she earned a certificate (with honours, hey-o!) in the foundations of art and design. She loves puzzling through language, eating lemon pastries (on occasion), and watching any and all media from Studio Ghibli. She currently works as a freelance editor and designer, and is available for hire on a select basis. As of 2017, she has been a member of Editors Canada in order to maintain high professional standards for her editorial work. She also has a cat; he’s orange and sometimes really annoying, but mostly really sweet.
Freelance Editor & Designer
I’ve enjoyed books for as long as I can remember. Art, design, and language all worked their way into my heart shortly after discovering books. Growing up, I learned French and Spanish—the grammar in my classes was the best part for me—and practiced art. I’ve since studied language, from linguistics to literature to second language learning, and want to help impart my knowledge on my fellow writers. I work as a freelance editor for long and short fiction, web content; a transcriptionist; and a designer. My niche is self-publishing authors who do print and ebook releases.
I write, too! Since I was a teen, I’ve written short stories, poetry, and long-form fiction. Fantasy is my first love, but I’m partial to contemporary fiction, mysteries, paranormal, sci-fi, and historical fiction, dabbling in those genres and cross-genre work.
My current work in progress is a high fantasy set in an industrious desert province, following Zephyr and his twin sister Dwyn as he aims to complete his Mage training and avoid being murdered by a cutthroat classmate. But Harlow is the least of his worries when he reaches his destination and discovers the horrifying secret behind his magic. How is he supposed to save the world when it means destroying the source of his power?
