Raven Oak

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.

Hilton Honors Horror

Burned hands

The first weekend of June, I had the displeasure of staying at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Spokane, WA. I was vending at the Lilac City Comicon at the Spokane Convention Center and chose to stay at the convention hotel–a mistake I won’t make again. Back in 2017, our first LCCC, we stayed at …

Slow with the Updates


Greetings and salutations! I realize I’ve been a bit slow with the updates here lately. Rest assured that’s because I’m at the tail end of edits/revisions on Amaskan’s War, and I don’t want to be distracted by anything else. I do have a few EVENTS coming up, so be sure to check out the EVENT CALENDAR. …

Norwescon 41 Wrap-Up

New Hair

This is your Norwescon 41 Wrap-Up! I can’t believe it’s already time for Norwescon! Or at least, I couldn’t believe that last week when I was scrambling to get ready for it. For the first time in 5 years, I wasn’t a panelist or vending. For once, I was attending as an attendee, a fact …

Review from Chanticleer

Amaskan's Blood

A quite lengthy review of Amaskan’s Blood was posted recently from Chanticleer, who gives it 5 stars. Some snippets from the review: “Just when you think you know where the novel is headed, the author will surprise you, frighten you, charm you, and, ultimately, move you profoundly.” “…very precise and inviting prose…enormous talent for elaborate plot twists imbued …

Emerald City Comicon Wrap-Up

Jareth Finds a TARDIS

It’s time for your Emerald City Comicon Wrap-Up! For the first time in years, I was not a panelist at Emerald City Comicon–this time by choice as I wanted to cut back on my convention schedule after last year’s event calendar. In fact, I wasn’t even going to fight the crowds and attend ECCC until they …

Adventures in 3D Printing

TARDIS and Neko

I like to mention as often as possible that my husband wins. At what? All the things. No, really. For our anniversary, he got me a 3D printer. This one to be exact. It’s an MP Mini Delta, which is a great intro-line model printer that still prints with decent quality and size for its …
