Katie MacLean was an odd, loud, nerdy child. She read ravenously and watched any fantasy or SciFi show or movie she could find. Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, she was known for disappearing into the library for weeks at a time, only to emerge and orchestrate elaborate, fantastical adventures for herself, her friends, and her dog. She has only grown nerdier, more outspoken, and far odder since.
Katie has her Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Political Sciences from the University of Alberta, where she specialized in gender-politics. She also holds a certificate in Event Management from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. For a long while, she worked designing and facilitating youth leadership workshops and programs.
She has since retreated west and is currently living her best hermit life in the woods somewhere with her cat Tommy while she works on her debut novel. She loves all manner of board games, puzzles, crafts, and escape rooms and is still a sucker for a good story, in whatever form. Books, movies, comics, tv shows, radio dramas, stage productions, and video games are all brilliant by her record. Someday, she'd like to help write them all. Today, she is still in the process of becoming.
