Bethalynne Bajema

Biography

Bethalynne is a Michigan native who spent much of her early life chasing the fae around her grandfather's nearly mythical fairy tale garden. Where the fae weren't calling, the strange shadows in the closet were whispering. When it was finally suggested that she kindly bring herself down from the clouds (and out from those dark places) she turned her expansive imagination towards capturing her characters and their worlds through writing and drawing. The latter has led to her having a notable career as a professional artist for the past twenty years, as well as self publishing many of the stories behind her artwork.

Bethalynne's art and writing have been published in Weird Tales Magazine, Dark Beauty Magazine, Cthulhu Sex Magazine, Gothic Beauty Magazine, as well as coffee table books Gothic Art Now, Vampire Art Now, and as a writer for photographer John Santerineross' books Fruit of the Secret God and Dream. Her work is primarily fantasy based with a healthy influence of neo Victorian, horror, and dystopian themes.
