kc dyer loves travel and has literally flown around the world in search of fantastic stories. When she’s not on the road, she resides in the wilds of British Columbia, where she likes to walk her dogs in the woods and write books. Her most recent novel, EIGHTY DAYS TO ELSEWHERE, is the madcap story of a young woman so desperate to save her family’s bookstore that she undertakes a race around the world, but ends up falling for her competition.

Kirkus Reviews calls EIGHTY DAYS TO ELSEWHERE "A charming story detailing a woman’s self-discovery through travel." Library Journal says: "This inspired series launch from dyer offers readers a journey around the world that is both entertaining and enlightening."

 

kc is also the author of FINDING FRASER, an international bestseller in romantic comedy.

 

US Weekly calls FINDING FRASER a “humorous but relatable self-discovery tale”, and Bustle names it a ‘Must-Read for OUTLANDER fans”.

 

And coming this fall, AN ACCIDENTAL ODYSSEY continues the ExLibris adventure series. When an unexpected phone call derails a young woman’s wedding plans, it sparks an epic adventure around the magical, modern-day Mediterranean. Gianna Kostas is on the cusp of a fairy tale life, but on her way to taste wedding cakes, things go sideways. An unexpected phone call sends Gia off on a wild journey half-way around the world in pursuit of her ailing—and nearly-estranged—father as he retraces Odysseus’s famous voyage. As Gia adventures – and eats – her way around the Mediterranean, she discovers that confronting epic storms, sea monsters and even ripped surfer dudes might be the easy part. Along the way, as she uncovers family secrets, finds heartbreak, and learns more about a certain archeologist with secrets of his own. Gia discovers that fairy-tale endings might be messy and complicated, but they can happen anywhere.

FAQ

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR IDEAS?

My stories come from nowhere and everywhere. I constantly find inspiration around me, from the beautiful and mysterious place where I live to the mundane bits and pieces of everyday life. Writer’s block is never one of my problems – trying to find the time to write all the stories I want to is much tougher for me!

WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE INTERESTED IN YOUR NOVELS?

I write stories for readers of all ages. My historical novels are aimed at anyone who might be interested in what actual day-to-day life was like during the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Reformation. Many history books deal with big ideas like kings and queens and wars. I like writing stories about how regular people spent their time. The settings are historically accurate, but the characters are all fictional. My contemporary stories hold magic of a different sort, and I try to find a route into the minds and motivation of the most interesting characters I can find!

WHAT ARE YOU WRITING NOW?

I’ve just published a romantic comedy called FINDING FRASER for grown-ups and I am working on another series for young adults. Stay tuned!

WHERE CAN I BUY YOUR BOOKS?

My books are available through bookstores in Canada or on the internet at Indigo.Chapters.ca and Amazon.com.

Autographed copies are available.
