Biography

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood, Class-M Exile, and the collection Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays. She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on, enjoying cartography, or staring at the ocean. She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.

How to Pronounce Amaskan

I’ve had a lot of readers, reviewers, and other folks asking me in the past year how to pronounce the word “AMASKAN,” so I made a video. Yes, I know the video is mirrored and thus, the text is backwards. iMovie wouldn’t change it. If you know how to wrangle iMovie into shape, let me …

Jessica Jones Panel

ECCC did not record our Jessica Jones & PTSD panel, but because they chose not to do so, we were given permission to record it ourselves. The mic setup in our room wasn’t stellar, but the audio is audible and clear most of the time. If you were sad you couldn’t make our panel, you can …

ECCC Wrap-Up

ECCC or Emerald City Comicon 2017 was amazing though a bit crowded! They apparently set records with 90,000+ in attendance on Saturday, which is crazy crowded to me. Due to my schedule, I only attended on Saturday (when my panel was), but I had a blast hanging out with my author friend Jesikah Sundin and chainmailling friend …

What It Means to be Fandom

The year was 1994, and I was 16. I was “old enough to drive,” which humorously enough was the slogan for ArmadilloCon 16 that year. I’ve written about my experiences at my first convention before, but it wasn’t until yesterday that I took a good look back at the past 23 years of my life …

MNG: Diablo III

This week’s Monday Night Gaming / MNG: Diablo III Since we have some friends we play with online (via Discord), we’re always looking for multiplayer games to play.
