About this author

Sierra Dean is a reformed historian. She was born and raised in the Canadian prairies and is allowed annual exit visas in order to continue her quest of steadily conquering the world one city at a time. Making the best of the cold Canadian winters, Sierra indulges in her less global interests: drinking too much tea and writing urban fantasy.

Ever since she was a young girl she has loved the idea of the supernatural coexisting with the mundane. As an adult, however, the idea evolved from the notion of fairies in flower beds, to imagining that the rugged-looking guy at the garage might secretly be a werewolf. She has used her overactive imagination to create her own version of the world, where vampire, werewolves, fairies, gods and monsters al...more

Update on Spring:

As many of you have probably noticed, it's now May and Spring hasn't been released. I know, my bad! With all the planning for RT, I've been ridiculously busy. And in speaking with my editor, her schedule is also crazy packed. Because of this, I'm having to move the release date back by necessity.

The NEW release month for Spring is going to be August. I'm sorry for the delay, b... Read more of this blog post »

The low rating isn't due to the plot, which is interesting enough.

This book is oddly written. It's done from 3 points of view, but the characters lapse into moments where they know WAY too much about what other characters are thinking or feeling. Not...more
Sierra Dean is 60% done with The Good Girl: I'm not a fan of the tense of this book, or of the was narrators make omniscient observations about other people thinking things they cannot possibly know. Irritating.

Short, quick, and fun. A very enjoyable read from Victoria Dahl that proves a heroine in her 40s IS still enjoyable to read about!

“Detective Castilla, your Secret is safe with me." She blinked with surprise, and I groaned. "God, Holden. How long have you been waiting to use that line?"
"About three years."
"And in three years you couldn't find any room for improvment?”
Sierra Dean

“...Fate forced me to become a two-man woman. But there was no effing way I could be a four-man woman.
Even metaphysics couldn't keep that from being whorey.”
Sierra Dean, A Bloody Good Secret

“She was speaking in tongues?"
"What da f**k else she gonna speak with?" Veda rolled her eyes. I saw no reason to explai, so I let her go on.”

“In the ill-judged execution of the well-judged plan of things the call seldom produces the comer, the man to love rarely coincides with the hour for loving. Nature does not often say "See!" to her poor creature at a time when seeing can lead to happy doing; or reply "Here!" to a body's cry of "Where?" till the hide-and-seek has become an irksome, outworn game. We may wonder whether at the acme and summit of the human progress these anachronisms will be corrected by a finer intuition, a close interaction of the social machinery than that which now jolts us round and along; but such completeness is not to be prophesied, or even conceived as possible. Enough that in the present case, as in millions, it was not the two halves of a perfect whole that confronted each other at the perfect moment; a missing counterpart wandered independently about the earth waiting in crass obtuseness till the late time came. Out of which maladroit delay sprang anxieties,disappointments, shocks, catastrophes, and passing-strange destinies.”
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the d'Urbervilles

“Because the song was that great and because we all really paid attention to it. Five minutes of a lifetime were truly spent, and we felt young in a good way.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

“I want to change my punctuation. I long for exclamation marks, but I'm drowning in ellipses.”
Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies

“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“You told me once that a soul isn't something a person is born with but something that must be built, by effort and error, study and love. And you did that with more dedication than most, that work of building a soul-not for your own benefit but for the benefit of those that knew you.”
Chad Harbach, The Art of Fielding
