I was born in Anchorage, Alaska, and spent my childhood in Tacoma, Washington. And now I live on the East Coast. I’m not quite sure how that happened….

By day I’m a secretary. I file papers, create spreadsheets, update calendars, sort papers — the usual secretarial things.

At night, I write about lonely young girls who can speak to engines, Nikola Tesla’s secret journals, long-horned demons lost in Northwest suburbia, giant biomechanical insects, mothers who are good monsters, monsters who are good mothers, lots of consensual human-&-creature sex, and even more broken hearts.

You can also find me on my website, where I talk a lot about ants (too many), coffee (too little), and cheese (never enough!).

Livia Llewellyn isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but they do have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from their feed.

Both were announced a while back, but I’m still playing catch-up here (day job woes). The first is Black Feathers, edited by Ellen Datlow and coming out from Pegasus Books in 2017. No cover art yet – I’ll post that as soon as I get it. Below is the Table of Contents:

“When she’s gone far and long enough that she no longer remembers her name, she stops, and presses her fingers deep into her sockets, scooping her eyes out and pinching off the long ropes of flesh that follow them out of her body like sticky yarn. What rushes from her mouth might be screaming or might be her soul, and it is smothered in the indifferent silence of the wild world.”
