Introducing author M.R. Ward

Today  in the third stop of the A Journey of Words blog tour, the spotlight is on author M.R. Ward.

Author Name: M.R. Ward
Title of your AJOW story: The Open Road
Brief synopsis of your AJOW story: A weekend trip turns into a nightmare as four friends find themselves on a collision course with the supernatural.
What inspired you to write this story? I wanted to tell a scary story, one that would stick with the reader long after the last line.
How long have you been writing? A year, or twenty-five, depending on your view. At thirteen, I spent a year writing stories, but lacked life experience and technical knowledge. Twenty years later I began writing a novel, but quit after a few months due to self-doubt. I never stopped creating stories in my head, though, so in 2015 I decided it was “now or never” and have remained consistent.
What genre do you usually write in and why? Horror. I find it entertaining.
What else are you working on writing at the moment? I’m working on a short story that’s more along the lines of a paranormal love story. I’m also continuing the novel I started five years ago.
What advice do you have to give to new writers? You have to take a chance and really give your best effort, but that means putting in the time and doing the work. No one can write your story for you.
How can people discover more about you and your work?

Her debut novel, Tranquility, published in 2015, by Escargot Books and Music, was inspired by her work as a personal support worker specializing in dementia care.

She grew up on a farm in remote northern Ontario, and now lives in Cambridge, Ontario with her husband and cat.
