Chris Dubecki grew up in a quaint old town nestled in a valley deep in the Oak Ridges Moraine, in a house that was probably haunted. He’s been writing fantastical stories since he was able to hold a pencil, and dabbled with high fantasy, cyberpunk, and other genres – completing his first 175k word fantasy novel at 15, which has never seen the light of day.
Now, he lives in Toronto, and spends his non-day job time engaged in all manner of geekery, from praising the Gods of Chaos in Warhammer 40k, to playing rascally thieves in tabletop RPGs, to repeatedly blatting his face with a rake in an attempt to beat Dark Souls 3.
He holds Neil Gaiman and Brandon Sanderson in the highest of esteem and thinks Mistborn might be one of his favourite books ever, but other books he’s been known to love include Neverwhere and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, Good Omens by Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke, and The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. He’s also a fan of Jim Butcher, R. Scott Bakker, Robert Jordan, Julia Grey, Terry Brooks, and many others.
He loves cats, cooking, and has a deep, abiding fondness in his alien psyche for all things Fey, Lovecraftian horrors, and other such inhuman monstrosities of the Blue-and-Orange Morality kind. Like cats.
