Hey would you look what happened:…

Miyori999 and I have been published and now we have a piece of work created available for sale and waiting to be bought :D  It would be lovely if anyone buys this, and if you do, you'll receive a good pat on the back and my forever adoration (though there's a good chance I adore you already too) :pat:

This is my midterm week so I've been noticeably absent for that reason, but I have big plans, guys.  Big plans.

Is that the end of the world, or are you just happy to see me?

I'm a 22 year old civil engineering student puttering around somewhere in Canada. I just finished my BA in Geography and that's probably the direction I'm headed in, but there's something I'd rather be doing. I love writing about dark, gritty things, and you would never guess it from seeing me in person. I've written 15 novels and also have 2 novellas to my name. My favorite topics to tackle are: the apocalypse, space travel and military fiction. I got the gift of writing and love of the strange and obscure from my dad's dad; born in 1911 Russia and who believed aliens walked the Earth.

I also (used to) blog about music at: It's more of a casual hobby, and practice for writing for Rolling Stone.

But who am I outside of writing? When I'm not in line at Tim Hortons, trying new nail polish shades or buying 5 books at a time at Value Village, I'm just a somewhat-normal girl navigating through my twenties. I'm Scottish, Irish and British on my mom's side, and Russian Mennonite on my dad's side. Fate made me the oldest of 3; I've got a younger sister and brother. I need 4 things to function on a daily basis: coffee (one sugar with soy milk), The Simpsons, an hour to myself to read a book (a good YA or Stephen King), and a playlist that never ends.

My first book, published with The Dryden Experiment with illustrations by Miyori999 can be found here, and is also available on Amazon Canada
