Penelope S. Hawtrey

Penelope Hawtrey

Penelope Hawtrey grew up in southern Ontario and moved away as a teenager to eastern Ontario to attend University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree. Post-graduation, she wrote a little, then stopped, and started again a decade later. Ever since she completed her first manuscript, though, she hasn't stopped writing.

Penelope’s publications in literary journals include the Furious Gazelle, the Thieving MagpieCrack the Spine, and Drunk Monkeys. In addition, Penelope has written two novels that are part of the Dragon in the Mirror series: Dragon in the Mirror: Into Canonsland (2019), and The Bridge of Olin (2021). 

When not writing, she’s a travel enthusiast and a sometimes sunny day runner. She lives in Canada with her husband.
