Faye Arcand is a writer, blogger, and all round writing enthusiast. Whether she’s deep in the writing of a novel or presenting at a conference, the love of the written word shines through.

She chose to be involved with Wine Country Writers’ Festival because there are so many writers who don’t get the opportunity to participate in community writing experiences.

Arcand welcomes followers and readers to her two blogs: My Twisted Writer Brain and Auntie Says. She will consider guest bloggers if the aesthetic matches. Come says HI! www.fayearcand.com
