Branwen joined the canon authors in 2004 after submitting A Simple Game. Before 2016, she used the pen name Dr. Bender. She became interested in literature and monsters via the Dungeons & Dragons group her parents were members of when she was a young child, and the horror genre via watching Nightmare on Elm Street 3. She lists her influences as Raymond E. Feist, Clive Barker, E.E. ‘Doc’ Smith, Akira Kurosawa, Masamune Shirow, Laurell K. Hamilton, Stjepan Šejić, Dan Shive and J. Jacques.
An interview with her can be found at the WA Universe section of the Whateley site.
