Author of queer speculative fiction
Mx. Liet is a disabled, mentally ill, queer, non-binary, trans person. They’re crafty and artsy and witchy, living in the magic of every day. Landscapes are their favourite things to paint, and they can sketch hands for hours. Dabbling in photography, game design, and programming as the mood strikes them, Tia likes to find balance between creativity and technicality.
They’ve been writing for as long as they can remember. Whether that was scribbling in notebooks or on napkins, on breaks, or under tables, they’re always writing. In fact, they once won an award for Writing While Hiking during Kangaroo Court at a kids’ camp. They’re a writer that loves Speculative Fiction of all kinds, but they gravitate toward Science Fiction, Horror, and Fantasy. Sometimes they write Contemporary Romance, too. Everything is queer and nothing hurts (usually).
They grew up in Western Canada, among the trees and lakes of the Okanagan. Once, they lived with a bear next door, with a llama, sheep, and goat in their backyard, while a huge fire raged across the lake. For a while, Tia also lived in Alberta, seeing the Rocky Mountains from afar, just outside of Calgary. Now, they live in the bustling Greater Toronto Area, rescuing squirrels and kittens, and volunteering with community initiatives. It’s much more peaceful these days.

Other works by Tia Liet:
Fluffy F/F romance: THE RED JOURNAL
Tucker found it on the train. It was a small, red, hardcover book, tattered at the edges with a broken spine, hardly looking like much anymore; well used. The lock on it was broken, the clasp sliding out easily.
Enraptured, inside he finds a broken heart, a journey of healing, and a love story.
Gothic Horror: 6 WESTWOOD DRIVE
Samantha Dam, a young nonbinary woman, has moved to a new home. At first, she thinks it’s the perfect little fixer-upper to make her life in. However, it’s not always love at first sight, and she starts to run into problems. Is it the rattling pipes, the creaky floors, or is it something else?
At least her sister is always there for her.
Follow Samantha as she makes the ultimate decision for the home; keep it, or leave it?
