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, AN ACCIDENTAL ODYSSEY continues the ExLibris adventure series that began with EIGHTY DAYS TO ELSEWHERE. An unexpected phone call derails Gianna Kostas's wedding plans and sends her off on a wild journey half-way around the world. As Gia chases her ailing—and nearly-estranged—father around the Mediterranean, she discovers that confronting epic storms, sea monsters and even ripped surfer dudes might be the easy part. Along the way, she uncovers family secrets, finds heartbreak, and meets a certain archeologist with secrets of his own. Gia learns that fairy-tale endings might be messy and complicated, but they can happen anywhere.

 

kc has spoken before thousands of readers — kids and adults —  across Canada and the US, and in Europe and Asia. She is represented by Laura Bradford of Bradford Literary Agency.

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.
