It's out there now! :D The links technically went live last night and since then I've kind of been bouncing off the walls over here. The Amazon link will take you to the physical copy purchase, and the other outlets are for the ebook.

ALSO...the eBook of Sky Goddesses of Dryden (containing stories of mine that were illustrated by the lovely Danielle Evert) is free for the next five days on Amazon!…

If you buy it (THANK YOU), enjoy it!

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

I'm a 23 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 (dark roast with one 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
