I’m Kristi, the author of THE VOODOO KILLINGS (Random House Canada, May 10th, 2016), the first book in my KINCAID STRANGE series, an urban fantasy mystery about a voodoo practitioner living in Seattle with the ghost of a deceased grunge rocker.
I am also the author of OWL AND THE JAPANESE CIRCUS ( Simon & Schuster Canada) and OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS, and OWL AND THE ELECTRIC SAMURAI (Aug 22nd 2016), an urban fantasy series about Ex-archaeology grad student turned international antiquities thief, Alix— better known now as Owl—a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world.
I write what I love; adventure heavy stories featuring strong, savvy female protagonists, pop culture, and the occasional RPG fantasy game thrown in the mix. You can hear me biweekly on The Adventures in Sci-Fi Publishing Podcast where I cohost and interview both up-and-coming and established authors in the genre.
Besides writing I’m also a scientist. I have a BSc and MSc from Simon Fraser University in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and a PhD in Zoology from the University of British Columbia. My specialties are genetics, cell biology, and molecular biology, all of which I draw upon in my books.
Authors I love: Ernest Cline, Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, Diana Rowland, Cassandra Clare, Ian Hamilton, and Suzanne Collins, to name just a few.
