Ariane Signer has been writing her thoughts, fears and dreams in journals since the early 90’s. A personal development and self-help junkie, she has been working as a creative freelance writer since 2016. A native Canadian, she has found her home in a small town in Switzerland, where she lives with her husband and two young sons. Ariane established her blog, The Shadow and The Shimmer, in 2014. The blog afforded her a space to let out her (sometimes complicated) feelings about being in a long- distance relationship, struggles with alcohol and battle with panic disorder.
In 2019, Ariane compiled some of her writings and published a collection of poems, called 'Things That Shine'.
