Fiona Skye is a fantasy author, currently living in the deserts of Southern Arizona. She shares a home with her husband, three kids, three cats, and a Border Collie.

Fiona’s passion for storytelling began early in life. As a child, she loved playing make-believe and inventing elaborate fantasy worlds to explore. At age twelve, she wrote her first short story, which was based on a song by a 1980s hair band. Since then, she has dedicated her life to story craft, only to be occasionally distracted by the dogged pursuit of the perfect plate of cheese enchiladas.

She counts Diana Gabaldon and Jim Butcher as her favorite authors and biggest influences. Joining these two on the list of people she would wait in queue for a week to have a coffee with

I hope you’ve all been enjoying Short Story month. Here’s my last offering, a recent story about one of the bad guys in my Revelations Trilogy. It takes place approximately three years after the end of Silver Shackles, and is part of a longer anthology that I’ll be publishing towards the end of the summer. The […]

Nice beginning to a new series. It's a bit too much like Bernard Cornwell's Saxon series, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

“I can't promise you that I won't hurt you," he said softly after it became clear I wasn't going to speak. Sincerity flowed from him like water in a river and it nearly broke my heart. "I can't say that I won't ever do something stupid, or forget your birthday or our anniversary or your favorite flavor of ice cream. I'm fallible; I'm gonna make mistakes. But I can promise you that I won't lie to you, and I'll never cheat on you. Your Cat is a part of you. She makes you who you are. I can't ignore that, and even if I could, I wouldn't want to. All you need to do is trust me, Riley. That's all I'm asking.”
Fiona Skye, Faerie Tales

“Yep, I was so mature, I decided I would just have to reward myself by doing the naked lambada with a Federal Agent.”
Fiona Skye, Faerie Tales

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

“Be uncomfortable; be sand, not oil, to the machinery of the world.”
Gunter Eich

“I can worship Nature, and that fulfills my need for miracles and beauty. Art gives a spiritual depth to existence -- I can find worlds bigger and deeper than my own in music, paintings, and books. And from my friends and family I receive the highest benediction, emotional contact, and personal affirmation. I can bow before the works of Man, from buildings to babies, and that fulfills my need for wonder. I can believe in the sanctity of Life, and that becomes the Revealed Word, to live my life as I believe it should be, not as I'm told to by self-appointed guides.”
Neil Peart, The Masked Rider: Cycling in West Africa

“books, i think, are a different kind of time machine. instead of reminding you of a lost world, they create one for you. more personal, more intimate-unlike movies, say, the world you experience while reading a book has been lived and envisioned entirely from the INSIDE, and its contours are yours alone.”
Neil Peart, Far and Away: A Prize Every Time
