About Fiona

Fiona Skye at the 2017 Tucson Festival of Books.

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

Fiona’s passion for story telling began early in life. She loved playing make-believe and inventing elaborate fantasy worlds to play in. At age twelve, she wrote her first short story, which was based on a song by a 1980s hair band. After giving it to her English teacher for editing and rewrites, she learned to love the entire writing process. She has dedicated her life since then 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 are Neil Peart, Kevin Hearne, and Brandon Sanderson.
