Frequently Asked Questions

 

What do you write?

I write science fiction and fantasy books for all ages. My debut, Not Even Bones, about a girl who dissects monsters and sells their bodies on the internet, came out in 2018. You can add the book on Goodreads here, or order here. The sequel, Only Ashes Remain, comes out in September 2019.

Is Not Even Bones part of a series?

Yes! The series is called Market of Monsters, and there will be three books.

I loved Not Even Bones! How can I support your work?

Thank you! I'm glad to hear it. Here's a few ways you can help!

  • Buy the book. Put it on your shelves! Give it away as a macabre holiday gift! The more books I sell, the more likely my publisher is going to be to continue publishing me.

  • Leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, Chapters, or any other major bookstore platform!

  • Tell your friends, spread the word.

  • Pre-order book two!

  • Talk about my book on social media, especially during release times.

  • Post your fan art and tag me in it so I can retweet it!

Where do you live?

I’m nomadic! I’ve lived in Edinburgh, Tokyo, Vancouver, Edmonton, Quebec City, Hong Kong, Taipei, Buenos Aires and Lima. By the time you read this, who knows where I’ll be.

What are your favourite books?

Oh man, you're making me pick?? That's cruel. My favourite books growing up were Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer and Dragon's Bait by Vivian Vande Velde.  Some current favourites include This Savage Song, Coldest Girl in Coldtown, Sorcery of Thorns, Descendant of the Crane, Illuminae, Jade City, and Defy the Stars.

Can you recommend some books for me?

Sure! Hop on over to my Goodreads here. I read and rate books I love, and I tag them into categories my fans might be interested in. Villain Main Characters? Monsters? Fantasy Black Markets? I have lists for those.

Will you read my book?

Probably not. I just don't have time or energy to help everyone, much as I'd like to. I do occasionally participate in mentorship contests, such as Pitch Wars and Author Mentor Match. If you want to work with me, check out if I've signed up to mentor this round and apply!

Will you come to my school/city/batcave?

Unfortunately, it’s usually not up to me where I go. Conferences have to invite me to things because travel is expensive! But I absolutely love travel and events and chatting with fans, so I try to do as many things as I can. You can check my Events page to see what I have coming up.

How can I contact you?

There's a contact section of the webpage here, with all sorts of information on how to get in touch with me for different things. You can also follow me on twitter, tumblr, or Goodreads, if you want updates on things.
