Quiana Kirkland is the Editor-in-Chief of Talaria Press and lives and works in the Seattle area. She became passionate about writing and helping others write while attending Bryn Mawr College, outside of Philadelphia. Quiana has edited various written works for over a decade before coming to Talaria Press. Her goal at Talaria Press is to publish books that inspire, entrance, and fill the reader with the spirit of adventure.
Quiana loves cooking, crafting, and, above all, reading. She would like to say that she lives in a crumbling Gothic mansion, but she does not. She does live in a cozy house with a large, but usually well-behaved pet.
The founders of Talaria Press come together for a follow-up to the "Quests & Answers" anthology with this new collection of short stories and novellas inspired by classic fairy tales and fables, and even a few all new contributions to the genre.
With referential and exciting tie-ins to their existing titles, such as "It's My Nature" by Garth Reasby or "Reaper's Breath" by Ren Cummins, fans of the books will be thrilled to see new facets to the characters and settings they have grown to love. And with new stories like "To Bee or Not to Bee" by Quiana Kirkland and the sci fi thriller "Aurora" by H. L. Reasby, readers will be welcomed into even more tales from these successful authors.
