Raven Oak


 

"I've been making up stories since I could talk. I get to make shit up for a living! How cool is that?"

A raven looking right. Author photo of Raven OakMulti-international award-winning speculative fiction author Raven Oak (they/them) is best known for their epic fantasy Boahim Trilogy and their space opera, Class-M Exile. They have over two dozen short stories published in anthologies and collections, and they're even published on the moon! Raven spent most of their K-12 education doodling and writing 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet.

Besides being a writer and artist, they're a geeky, disabled ENBY who enjoys getting their game on with tabletop games, indulging in cartography and art, or staring at the ocean. They live in the Seattle area with their wife, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach. Their hair color changes as often as their bio does.
