About Me

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I’m Keira Drake—I write YA fiction, usually with sci-fi/fantasy elements. My debut novel, THE CONTINENT, will be published by Harlequin TEEN in January 2018, and I am represented by the incredible, illustrious Jim McCarthy at Dystel, Goderich, and Bourret. I’m so looking forward to sharing my books with the world!


Here are a few things about me:

  • I am an avid gamer.
  • DUNE, by Frank Herbert, is my favorite book. Well…that one, or GOD EMPEROR OF DUNE. I can never decide. :)
  • I read very widely—sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction (my favorite), non-fiction, contemporary fiction, etc. and I have a particular interest in books about the sea. Horror, mysteries…not so much–but there are always exceptions!
  • I love getting to know other writers. And I heart bloggers with my whole heart. And readers. Do you like books? Basically, I love you.
  • I go full nerd. Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Wonder Woman, LEGO Technic, Metal Earth steel model kits, Halo, Assassin’s Creed, Mortal Kombat, Fallout, Zelda. Yesss!

Thanks again for dropping by! Feel free to comment, and let me know if you have a blog–or a book–I might like.
