My name is Amy Notdorft and I write a variety of speculative fiction — mostly fantasy and horror though I do stray beyond those from time to time.
I currently have two webfiction series:
A completed urban fantasy novel called Secrets and Skin (click below for more details):
And a monthly magical-realism series called 53 Ganymede (click below for more details):
You can also find a slew of short stories under my “Shorts” section.
If you want to know about me, here is a random assortment of facts:
- I’m Canadian.
- I’m a mom and a wife.
- I’m a Hayao Miyazaki fan.
- My favourite authors include (but are certainly not limited to): Neil Gaiman, Diana Wynne Jones, Charles Dickens, and Naomi Novik.
- I love fiction podcasts (Especially Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn’t Dead)
- I love anime and manga (e.g. Natsume’s Book of Friends, flying witch, Noragami, Ouran High School Host Club, Sweetness and Lightning, Claymore, and XXXholic to name a few).
- I am much more fox than hedgehog.
- I’m the kind of person who hoards all of their potions for the entire game because I’m paranoid I won’t have them when I need them.
- I’ve had a variety of jobs including working in a video game store, landscaping, and not-for-profit.
- Point and click adventure, RPGS (Japanese, turn-based, action, whatever), puzzle, and fighting games are my favourite.
