Hello! My name is Kiersi, and I’m a writer, baker, artist and adventurer living in central Wyoming. Growing up, I split my time between riding horses and writing fanfiction about my favorite anime shows—which are still pretty much the themes of my work today.
Together with the wonderful Amber J. Keyser, I co-wrote the Middle-Grade series QUARTZ CREEK RANCH, about a summer horse camp for troubled kids (published 2017 by Darby Creek). These four stand-alone stories about friendship and riding all take place on a working cattle ranch in my home state of Colorado—a subject dear to my heart!
My first Young Adult novel, HONOR CODE, will be released by Carolrhoda Lab on March 1st, 2018. It will be followed by a YA fantasy, TOWER OF SMOKE & LIES, in Spring 2019.
I’m represented by the fantastic Fiona Kenshole of Transatlantic Literary Agency, who is the best superhero agent I could have asked for.
In addition, I work as a professional freelance copywriter, writing blogs for businesses and creating powerful marketing content. For more information about my work and how to hire me, click here.
I also love to teach! With over four years of experience in creating custom training programs and giving specialized adult classes, I bring enthusiasm and presence to any conference, seminar or workshop. Hire me to speak by visiting my Speaking page, and for more information about my credentials.

I also contribute twice per month to the publishing industry blog, Publishing Hub.
