About Me

Hi! I’m Kiara aka Melissa. Here’s my “official” bio:

Kiara fights evil by reading books. Her secret alter ego has a boring™ day job, but at night she writes and reviews speculative fiction. She carries the keys to dozens of hearts in her pockets and jumps puddles in a single bound. Her superhero power is losing her socks before they’ve even made it into the dryer. She also likes to tell stories, so parts of this bio may be exaggerated.

I live and work in Ohio in the US of A. I like superheroes, mythology, new twists on old stories, sarcasm, and not-quite-entirely happy endings. I’m bored by routine happily ever afters. What I’d really like to see is some fiction with some already happily married couples.

About My Reviews

I review speculative fiction: fantasy of all flavors, urban fantasy, science fiction, post-apoc, dystopian, and YA that fits those genres.  Review precedence will be given to physical copies, but there is still no guarantee of a review. All reviews, whether I was provided with a review copy gratis or not, will be reviewed honestly and in my own words.

If you’d like to submit a book (or novella or anthology or something else) for review, please use one of the below contact methods.
