Kyla became a SciFi/Fantasy addict at age three watching Doctor Who on late nights up with her mom. She discovered her love of reading and writing in the third grade reading Robert A. Heinlein and Piers Anthony and trying to create stories like her heroes.

Currently she lives in Ohio with her grandmother and her dog, Mya – named after a SciFi character. She is inspired by the musing of her fellow writers in the Entropy writing group and hanging out at Barberton Public Library.

Ubik is an odd rollercoaster ride that I don't fully understand but I'm glad I read it.

Omg this book was just amazing. A fast paced, twisty read that made me rethink my bias against spiders. Science heavy but in an easily digestible way. Highly recommend.
