Sirena Van Schaik was born in British Columbia, Canada; the youngest of 4: 2 brothers and a sister. Growing up in the wilds of BC, she discovered her love of nature, adventure and appreciated those quiet moments at the end of a busy day when she could bury her nose in a book.
From there, Sirena discovered writing and spent as much time as she could in the written word…either by dancing through the worlds created by her favorite authors or creating her own worlds.
At 18, she moved to Ontario, where she continues to reside with her husband, two children and beloved family pets. You can find her enjoying her passion as a writer when she isn’t spending time with her family.
Sirena received her MA in creative and critical writing in 2020, her post-graduate certificate in creative writing in 2017 and her honors diploma in early childhood education in 2001. She is currently pursuing her PhD in creative and critical writing.
