Dear Reader,

I’m Xandra Robinson-Burns, writer and protagonist of Heroine Training. Welcome!

Here I chronicle my life chapter by chapter, with a few recurring themes along the way:

  • Making daily life more magical
  • Finding wisdom in what I do for fun
  • Being the heroine of my own story.

Join me in celebrating creativity, simplicity, and character. A heroine is never finished, but on her journey through life – one day, one mini adventure at a time.
