About T.C. McMullen and Owllight Creations
I first pleased fans in 2002 with the surprisingly "clean" yet suspenseful psychological thriller, Whispers of Insanity. It focused on the characters and old-fashioned suspense more than blood or gore. Gone Before Dawn, inspired by my local area, thrilled even more readers, but it was The Manipulated Evil Trilogy with the intricate plot and strong female warrior Ravyn that gained the attention of readers from Washington to Maine, Pennsylvania to Idaho and even across the globe to the UK and Australia.
Since then, I’ve written more novels, all with tales full of deep characters, mystery, adventure and more. A perfectionist at heart, I’ve studied the craft of writing as well as art since I graduated high school in 1990.
I enjoyed research into the myths of ancient cultures and drew much of my inspiration from the stories. Not usually a fan of fantasy because I prefers faster paced stories than most fantasy, I nevertheless found myself pulled into the realm of the genre with my work. Although I have written about dragons and other familiar mythical creatures, I always strive to add a unique twist either to the character or to the race or setting. My art always involves my love of nature and or dragons and other mythical creatures.
My hobbies center around my professions of writing and art, but also include gardening, hiking, camping, and being with my family. I much prefer rock and acoustic music, action movies, and anything that stirs the soul or excites the imagination.
A mother of three girls, grandmother to two grandchildren, I live in the wondrous rural Pennsylvania mountains where the views are beautiful all year around.
The Making of Owllight Creations
I spent years designing and publishing books for others, working for independent publishing companies, and then I worked in designing print advertisements for a local trade paper.
In 2019 I made the move away from working for others and started full time creating and writing for followers and those who love nature, mystery, and search for empowerment. It was a bigger end and beginning to things than I ever expected.
Now, in 2022, I’m finally growing my line of artwork and writing again.
I operate the online shop with my PSD dog Pippin (after Peregrin Took, the Hobbit) and tend to my physical fine art booth when circumstances allow with the assistance of one of my daughters or friends.
