Multi-award-winning author Jerena Tobiasen retired from a legal career in 2015. Since then, she has published three historical novels - The Crest, The Emerald and The Destiny – a saga known as The Prophecy. Jerena enhances her writing by travelling to foreign lands, visiting museums and libraries, conducting interviews, and travelling in the footsteps of her characters. Her experiences and discoveries enrich the authenticity of her stories. In 2019, Jerena travelled extensively through southern Europe, northern Africa, the Arctic and the Middle East collecting data for a new series, drafts of which are in the works.

Many of Jerena’s short stories and poems have been published in the Royal City Literary Arts Society e-magazine ‘Wordplay at Work’, as well as on her website jtobiasen.ca. Jerena is a member of The Writers’ Union of Canada, the Canadian Authors Association, the Federation of BC Writers and the Royal City Literary Arts Society.
