Michelle West

She lives in Toronto with her long-suffering husband and her two children, and to her regret has no dogs.

Reading is one of her life-long passions, and she is some­times paid for her opinions about what she’s read by the venerable Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. No matter how many book­shelves she buys, there is Never Enough Shelf space. Ever.

She has published as Michelle Sagara (her legal name), as Michelle West (her husband's surname), and as Michelle Sagara West (a combination of the two).

Michelle Sagara West isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but she does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from her feed.

The Emperor’s Wolves first chapter

Because The Emperor’s Wolves comes out in October, and it’s September now, which means it’s time for the preview chapter. So, this week instead of a short story, I’m posting the first chapter. You can find it on the book page, linked above, or here. (The book page has current audio pre-order links; I assume that the audiobook will be sold on iTunes, but the preorder for that hadn’t gone live yet.) Read more of this blog post »

“I'm missing something, aren't I?"
"Brains", he snapped. "And survival instinct. The Hawklord's been waiting for you for three hours."
"Tell him I'm dead.”
Michelle Sagara West, Cast in Shadow

“Is this some sort of test?"
"Everything that doesn't kill you is."
"Mind you," he added, "surviving doesn't always mean you passed.”
Michelle Sagara West, Cast in Secret

“There wasn't a colloquial phrase, or curse, that went something like, "May your day be full of angry dragons" or, "May every dragon you meet today be pissed off." But, there should have been.”
Michelle Sagara, Cast in Ruin
