Greetings, my lovely! My name is Courtney Cantrell. I was created to create, so that’s what I do: I make things.




I’m into epic fantasy, paranormal, sci-fi, horror.

I do oils, acrylics, pencil, pen, multimedia. Still life, portraits, abstract.

I dance in the pouring rain whenever possible.
This is its own genre. ; )

And I hope I leave my corner of the world
a little brighter than I found it.

Here’s what else you can peruse at Courtcan.com:

  • creative writing and all its pitfalls and possibilities
  • updates on my works-in-progress
  • real-life anecdotes and illuminating a-ha!s
  • The iotization of the Greek diphthong.
  • Just kidding.
  • Maybe.
  • If you’re lucky.
  • 42

A few “stats”:

  • I am the wife of Ed, often blogged-about as “the husband.”
  • I am the mama of a beautiful little girl known here as “CM.”
  • I am the cat-mommy of Peregrin “Pippin” Took Cantrell, a tabby of hobbit-like proportions.
  • By passport, I am an American; but I grew up in Germany, so culturally I’m a mutt (aka Third Culture Kid).
  • I don’t belong to a religion. I’m not sure I even belong to a belief system. I have beliefs? I have musings. I have wonderings and peculiarities of a variety people might call “spiritual.” As of this writing (Jan. 2019), it’s all in  a state of uncomfortable transmogrification, and I am strangely comfortable with that.

Let’s talk.

So. Enjoy your courtcan-ish reading (or viewing)! And please, do drop me a line to introduce yourself and let me know what you think of my ponderings:

In other news, here’s an old picture of me:

Fling this post into the ether of internetted winds, that it might implant itself in a bazillion other consciousnesses and hasten the onset of my world dominion. ...Wait -- did I say that out loud?Buffer this page

    Congratulations, Courtney! I did not realize that you had so many published novels. I guess I thought you were still working on your first one!

    GREAT new blog!! I loved reading about your early, early writings and how your parents kept them for you all these years. Keep up the good work.

    Love you much!

    • Aw, thank you so much, Queenie! I love sharing that story, and it’s so encouraging to hear that it touches others’ hearts.

      No, I’m working on my 8th, not my 1st. But I haven’t published yet! I would definitely have announced a publication LONG before now! 😉 My first one is coming out this summer. And not to worry — I’ll be making noise about it!

      Love you too!!!
