Marie Blanchet


Marie Blanchet is a designer by day and a writer by night, which means that she doesn’t really sleep a lot. Graduated from the Université du Québec en Outaouais in graphic design and comic arts in 2014, Marie has since gone on to write a webcomic and work full time in graphic design. The Blood Prince is her first novel, and she intends to write a great many more.
She loves fantasy and sci-fi, long walks in the forest, and taking pictures of her rabbit.

Marie Blanchet est une graphiste le jour et une écrivaine la nuit, ce qui veut dire qu'elle dors très peu. Diplomée de l'Université du Québec en Outaouais en design graphique et bande dessinée en 2014, Marie s'est ensuite installée à Rivière-du-Loup ou elle travaille en graphisme. The Blood Prince est son premier roman et elle planifie en écrire bien d'autres. Elle aime le fantasy et la science-fiction, les longues promenades dans la forêt, et prendre des photos de son lapin.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
The Blood Prince was a book that went through several writing processes. At first I had only a beginning and an end in mind, with several unrelated in-between scenes. I started writing it as the ideas came, but mid-way through the process I realised that I needed an outline, and so I made one. Even after I had to make major changes to the story about the first content edit, I still worked with an outline and found that it helps me a lot, even though the final result doesn't always match.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I read by myself? I don't know. When I was a kid I was so eager to learn to read that I learnt the words of my picture books by heart and then pretended to read the stories out loud. My first books were "Un dragon dans un chariot" and "Comptons les petits lapins", which is hilarious considering that I now own a rabbit and I wrote a book about dragons.
