One writers journey from 10 year old dreamer to nurse to mother to author.
Brittany Rainsdon started writing at a young age, penning poems and stories, and filling an overstuffed nightstand with spiral notebooks, pens, and floppy disks (yes, those were still a thing in 2007). During nursing school, Brittany lost touch with her writing. She graduated in 2008 and has since worked as an RN in both medical/surgical and rehabilitation specialties.
After having her third child in 2015 and needing a creative outlet, Brittany’s passion for writing reignited. Her first published story appears in Deep Magic, Spring 2021 and was reprinted in Best of Deep Magic Volume 2. Brittany will be published in Writers of the Future Volume 37 as a published finalist and in Writers of the Future Volume 38 as a contest winner.
Eventually, Brittany would like to expand her speculative fiction stories into novels, but she is currently enjoying short form. Brittany lives with her husband and four children near the Snake River in Idaho, where she swears it looks like a wintered Narnia for nearly half the year. She has many pairs of fuzzy socks.

I’m Brittany. I’m a nurse. I’m also a mom. I just had a baby. And I got my fourth quarter entry in for the Writers of the Future Contest while working around giving birth.
