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.

You can also find me on Twitter and on Wattpad. If you want to contact me for whatever reason, you can click the Contact option at the top of the page.
