Hi there! My name is TOPAZ WINTERS, and I’m a 15 year old author and singer/songwriter. I’m currently in the process of self-publishing my first novel, Frozen Hearts, and releasing my debut albumFrozen Hearts will be available for purchase in 2014, and the as-yet untitled album afterwards, and I’m so excited to be going on this journey.

I’m a dreamer and a self-confessed hopeless romantic. People tend to identify me as that one girl who walks around with her nose in a book all the time, and somehow magically manages to never bump into anything. I have way too many books for my own good, and I’m constantly buying more. When not reading, I can generally be found writing, blogging, playing some sort of musical instrument, singing, or hanging out with my Japanese Spitz puppy, Hachii. I believe that there’s no such thing as too much coffee or too many books. I really like winter, Starbucks coffee, and old vinyl records. I can be incredibly socially awkward, plus sometimes I forget to eat food. I mostly write my stories at my local library, and my music in the middle of the night when the rest of the world is asleep.

I currently live in Singapore with my mom, dad, little sister, and Hachii. I constantly blur the lines between reality and fantasy, and I am discovering new wonders every day.

  1. I love this last line in your bio; “I constantly blur the lines between reality and fantasy, and I am discovering new wonders every day.”

    I think it’s this which makes us into better artists, no matter or craft.

    Keep dreaming, and, never stop creating. The latter is the building blocks to making the former come true. :)


    • Cheers! I most certainly agree – all artists must have this blend or we can’t hope to succeed in our craft, yes? Thank you for your lovely comment. :)


  2. You may be my doppelgaenger: I too have the bad habit of walking around reading, and there really is no such thing as too many books or too much coffee.

    Congratulations on the novel and album – that’s awesome!


  3. Topaz your “about” was the first thing I read this morning. It gave me quite the beginning of the week boost. At age 14 I read constantly. I would finish a book and drop it next to the wall by my bed. When the stack was even with the mattress I boxed them up for my aunt. It added up to many boxes. May your future be long, bright, and successful.


    • This comment made me so happy, Frances! I’m glad I could make your Monday a little better, especially since I am unashamedly prejudiced against them. ;) What a lovely story – books can expand the world so much, and in my view you can never have too many boxes! Thank you for dropping by and for your well wishes. xx


  4. How great that you’ve already written a novel and created an album so young–you have a wonderful career ahead of you, or I guess more than one ;-) Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I’ll be following your blog to see what you’ll be up to next!


  5. Hi Topaz! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Congratulations, you’re 14 and so creative and focused! That’s terrific and you are also lucky to be 14 at a time when it’s possible to write, and self-publish, and communicate world-wide, just by hitting a key (plus of course all the hard work that goes into writing a book or a song…!) Enjoy, have fun, and keep on being creative! I’ll be looking out for your book!


    • And thank you for dropping by my little corner of cyberspace as well! Thank you so much; indeed, I’m incredibly grateful for both the magic that is the Internet and all the wonderful people who have been so open to my writing and music. :)

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog and making a comment. That particular post was written tongue in cheek, but a lot of readers saw it as getting somebody else to do the work. I look forward to reading more from you.
