Bethany van Sterling


I write literary fantasy, paranormal, and historical fiction. I'm also a language teacher and dancer/performing artist.

I've been greatly inspired by writers such as Milan Kundera, Mary Shelley, Oscar Wilde, Voltaire, Herman Hesse, as well as mythology, fairy tales, and folklore. But most of all, the sensuous arts of conversation, music, film, the performing arts, and, well, life in general. ;)
