Hi there, fanciful fans of the fantastic. I am Stacie “Tea” Hanson, a writer specializing in fantasy, dark fantasy, horror, and science fiction. Coupling the mysterious and incredible within the light and shadows of strange worlds, my books are varied but with common threads of deep world-building and intricate character relationships. Currently, I reside in Canada and work as an artist and writer. In addition to writing, I offer book services such as formatting and cover design.
You can find my books at major e-retailers and follow my blog where I discusses writing and creativity at length.
If you are looking for writing help (or a shoulder to cry on about said writing life), drop me a line!
Here I dispense what I hope for is helpful advice, reviews, rants, and other such sundry targeting the book and art world.
If you’re anything like me, you like to try new things. Especially when it comes to writing software that might make your life easier. But you also want new things to a.) not cost you an arm and leg (figuratively) b.) make you want to eat your arm and leg in trying to use it (literally) and c.) be actually useful versus shiny. This covers everything from hardware to software. I still for the life of me can’t figure out how to use my one friend’s super fancy coffee machine and settle for a simple pour/drip method. Ta-da. Coffee ready. Easy peasy. As a non-barista, stuff like that is a relief (we won’t discuss my instant coffee days).

“Rule of thumb: The more important a call or action is to our soul's evolution, the Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.”― Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle I really enjoy The War of Art. I mean, some people don’t and that’s...
Your story is probably going to be crappy. Until, suddenly, it isn’t. “I reread book four.” “And? How does it read?” “I hate it. It needs to go into the dumpster” *Cue the O-o expression* Nearly every writer goes through this. If you don’t, you probably live in a...
Sophie has the great misfortune of being the eldest of three daughters, destined to fail miserably should she ever leave home to seek her fate. But when she unwittingly attracts the ire of the Witch of the Waste, Sophie finds herself under a horrid spell that...
These tips seem simple, but they aren’t easy. Giving up your phone and ready-at-your-fingertips web browser is difficult. Writing by hand makes fingers hurt sometimes (whine). Many of us admit to addiction to the access we have with the Internet. But think about when you turn the Wi-Fi off and just get lost in writing your stuff out. You work better as a writer. we have
In my desk drawer and in a file folder lies a page of ideas. Half started stories, chapters to books, picture books, concept art. On my computer, there is a similar file folder of notes and text docs, all having work of all lengths within them but also not being...
Part 2: Know thyself So you’ve covered your bases. You’ve written out a good chunk of the ‘need to know’ for your story. And I can hear some of you whining now. “Do I have to?” No, you don’t. I’m not forcing you. What I am telling you is that the majority of writers...
Writing a novel can be intimidating but exciting. What you might find is that the entire process of writing a novel can be so intimidating that you never ever start. But do you really want to be that person who says to their friends “I could have been a writer too! I...
Crafting the Unseen Part 1 I’ve been asked recently about my Unseen Chronicles, a series of books debuting as fantasy/dark fantasy in the style of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the Oz series. Mostly about the origins of the concept and the world itself. I...
