Kirryn Lia Todd is a caffeinated selkie, a magical realist, a sea witch, and a Scots-Australian indie writer. She spends most of her time meandering through words and collecting the prettiest ones in a blue glass jar. When she isn't writing, she can be found by the ocean or at her university. Admittedly, sometimes still writing.

Her works include Beautiful Wasteland, a novel about pretend deserts and sunsets and falling in love, and Ascent, a story about mad people, demons, and music.

At the moment, all my e-books can be obtained via my Gumroad page; I'm still debating whether it's worth offering them as physical copies currently, but if I decide to do so, they'll likely be on Amazon. Thanks for your question!(less)

The War of the Flowers by Tad Williams
“-You're pretty hard-boiled, Tinker Bell.
-Call me that name again and you'll be wondering how your bollocks wound up lodged in your windpipe--from below. Just because we don't get to your side of things much anymore doesn't mean we don't know anything. 'If you believe in fairies, clap your hands!' If you believe in fairies, kiss my rosy pink arse is more like it. Now are you going to shut your gob or not?”
Tad Williams

“Hope is a fine killing thing.”
Kirryn Lia Todd, Bruised Opulence

“If I lose the light of the sun, I will write by candlelight, moonlight, no light. If I lose paper and ink, I will write in blood on forgotten walls. I will write always. I will capture nights all over the world and bring them to you”
Henry Rollins

“[...]the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

“Don't forget love;
it will bring all the madness you need
to unfurl yourself across
the universe.”
Mirabai

“We have to build the Republic of Heaven where we are, because for us, there is no elsewhere.”
Philip Pullman, The Amber Spyglass

“Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible, and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing that they evidently prefer.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
