D.M. Hedlund

D.M. Hedlund published her first novel, Threads of Deception, at the age of eighteen. Experiencing the difficulties of breaking into the market, she founded TBL in 2007 to help other new writers perfect and publish their works. Offering free writing coaching, editing, and publishing guidance, Hedlund expanded TBL into a global community of writers, editors, and artists.

When not working with the TBL staff, Hedlund spends her days writing, consuming an ungodly amount of caffeine, and binge-reading comics.
