Multi-award-winning author Jerena Tobiasen retired from a legal career in 2015. Since then, she has written and publish three historical novels – The Crest, The Emerald and The Destiny – collectively the Prophecy Saga.

Her experiences and discoveries enrich the authenticity of her stories. In 2019, Jerena travelled extensively through southern Europe, northern Africa, the Arctic and the Middle East collecting data for a new series, drafts of which are in the works.


Many of Jerena’s short stories and poems have been published in the Royal City Literary Arts Society e-magazine ‘Wordplay at Work’, as well as on her website jtobiasen.ca.
