About Me

Thanks for taking the time to visit! I’m Keira Drake—I write YA fiction, usually with sci-fi/fantasy elements. My debut novel, THE CONTINENT, the first in a trilogy, is in stores and online now, published by Harlequin TEEN! I’m so excited to share this book with the world, as well as all the future stories I want to tell! :D


Here are a few things about me:

  • I am an avid gamer. I have no intention of endorsing any console over another, because I’ll probably always buy them all. But I will say that I was an Xbox girl for 14 years, with a gamerscore of about 50K, until I bought a PS4, and was converted. It’s just a superior machine. That’s all I can say. Also, Nintendo forever. #Switch #BreathOfTheWild
  • 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!
  • Favorite authors: Frank Herbert, Stephanie Dray, Catherine McKenzie, Rena Olsen, Chelsea Sedoti, CS Forrester, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis.
  • I love getting to know other writers. And I heart bloggers with my whole heart. And readers. Do you like books? Basically, we might be BFFs. :)
  • I go full nerd. Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Wonder Woman, LEGO, Metal Earth steel model kits, Halo, Assassin’s Creed, Mortal Kombat, Fallout, Zelda, Horizon Zero Dawn. Yesss!

Thanks again for dropping by. Let me know if you have a blog–or a book–I might like!
