She spent most of her childhood in British Columbia before moving to Saskatchewan for a year and eventually putting down roots in Ontario. Burthom's writing journey originated in her early teens. She started out writing children’s stories, then expanded her skills into writing personal poetry and short stories for children. Recently, she has branched out to writing Paranormal Thrillers. Burthom has always been a huge bookworm of Mystery/Suspense Novels. That is why, she is very excited to finally be following her dream of becoming a published writer.
