About Me



As you've probably already guessed, my name is Janel Comeau, and I'm an aspiring author living in Edmonton, Alberta. Despite spending my days cleverly disguised as a fourth-year university psychology student, I haven't grown mentally or physically since my fourteenth birthday.

This is what sophistication and maturity look like.

I live at home with two parents, two brothers, and two lovable mutts of dubious genetic backgrounds. When I'm not lashed to my keyboard, I spend my time volunteering as a suicide prevention counselor and working as an assistant in a sex and violence research lab. The little spare time I have that isn't gobbled up by my writing projects is devoted to video games, playing guitar, and marveling at the perfection and simplicity of the common toaster.

I finished writing my first novel, a YA sci-fi, in June of 2013. Will Janel beat the odds and fulfill her lifelong dream of seeing her obnoxiously French name on bookstore shelves? Watch this page for answers.
