Jerena Tobiasen is a native Vancouverite who grew up on the Canadian prairies. When she returned to Vancouver in the early ‘80s, she pursued a career in law. More recently she embraced three passions which she finds inspiring: creative writing, history and travel. Those passions have been instrumental in her writing of the saga The Prophecy. Having completed the first draft of her manuscript in 2016, she travelled to Europe for some hands-on research, following the paths of her primary characters, visiting various museums seeking ways to authenticate her work, and interviewing an individual who lived in Germany during WWII. Currently, she is researching the underpinnings of new storylines.
