Born and raised in the State of New Hampshire in the Untied States,
Raven Wolfe resided in Montreal, Quebec for several years prior to
moving to Ottawa, Ontario in the 1990's. From an early age on she
wrote daily in her secret journals virtually everything relating to
some of her deepest thoughts to travels in the States and Canada.
As a child Raven read everything she could get her hands on
with a preference for books pertaining to horse stories. Later on in
life, she read science fiction and fantasy books, which enabled her to
find her own style and voice. Raven is a self-taught writer.
As a part time student at the Concordia University, she studied
sociology, basic English, math, English literature, library studies,
child- and regular psychology, philosophy and art. Due to personal and
disability related issues
she never received a university degree,.
