Mandi resides in Ohio, where she shares her workspace with an ornery bassle pup, two lab mixes, two cats, and assorted squirrels. It’s a regular menagerie here in the Konesni household! In addition to writing, she runs an online storefront, a roleplaying website, and is a 3rd Degree High Priestess. She’s an avid reader and blogger, who adores music. Whenever there is a concert in town, you can bet she’s taking the night off and cheering on her favorite bands. She can easily be bribed with peanut butter M&Ms, gemstones, hot lead singers, and gargoyles.
Welcome to my humble little home on the web. I’m Mandi, thanks for stopping by! I’ve always been sort of a “jack of all trades” crafty person. Soaps and toiletries? Okay! Jewelry? Hey, why not? Drawing? Eh, I’ll give it a shot, even if I could mangle a stick person. My first love, however, has always been writing.
I started reading young, and haven’t stopped to this day. Eventually you start imagining your own little worlds, which got me into roleplaying and gave me the courage to try my hand at writing for myself. It’s been a long journey filled with a lot of life lessons. Fitting into a mold has never suited me, so I busted out and made my own. Between my professional writing, 2 roleplaying groups, running a roleplaying site, and having my own store site… well, I’m a very busy female!
Through it all, bringing my own creations to life and painting my characters on a canvas of words brings me peace and keeps me happy. I hope journeying into my little alternate realities brings you as much joy as it has me.
