Bio

D.C (Darren) McNaughton (@DCMcNaughton) is a writer and fantasy illustrator living somewhere near Detroit, Michigan. When DC isn’t working on books and painting, she can often be seen running around being too honest for her own good.

Reading her projects section you might notice that she is ambitious to a fault, but that’s okay. Darren enjoys every second of the personal hell she has created, and wouldn’t give it up for anything.

Darren lives in a fantasy world, which she is very excited to start introducing the public to very soon. She plans to annoy writers’ agents all around the U.S come August, looking for one to sink her teeth into.

In the meantime, she writes and writes, and hopes to gollygosh someone out there notices. Between writing, she puts time into painting the characters from her worlds.




Favorite Writers:
Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss, Diana Gabaldon, T.S. Eliot, Lovecraft, Stephen King, George R.R. Martin, Gerald Brom and William Blake.

A Few Personal Tidbits:
When I’m not writing, I’m taking care of 70+ chickens. I love cooking food but I like eating it more. Love red wine, love chocolate. Between my family and I, we have one dog, (soon) two cats, two horses, and a pony. I have an indoor hen who thinks she’s a rooster. Her name is Dusty and she is a perfect chicken.



I do still paint/illustrate from time to time, but hardly ever for work. Most of my time spent painting is for my books, or to help other aspiring artists.
