Featuring readings from Sierra Dean, Melinda Friesen, and Clare C. Marshall. Hosted by Chadwick Ginther.

The Chiaroscuro Reading Series is an award-winning Canadian speculative fiction series taking place in Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, and Vancouver. Learn more online.

Sierra Dean is a reformed historian. She was born and raised in the Canadian prairies and is allowed annual exit visas in order to continue her quest of steadily conquering the world one city at a time. Making the best of the cold Canadian winters, Sierra indulges in her less global interests: drinking too much tea and writing urban fantasy.

She’s also a book lover (of course!), obsessive collector of yarn and nail polish and the owner of way too many pairs of shoes. You can usually find her spouting off Kroll Show references or imagining what her wedding to Richard Madden will be like (hopefully not red).

Melinda Friesen writes novels for teens and short stories. In the fall of 2014, her dystopian novel Enslavement, the first book in the One Bright Future series, was published by Rebelight Publishing. Her short stories have appeared in Freefall Magazine, the Metro News and the Forging Freedom II anthology. She resides in Winnipeg with her husband and four children. Learn more about her and the One Bright Future Series online.

Clare C. Marshall grew up in rural Nova Scotia with very little television and dial-up internet, and yet she turned out okay. Her YA sci-fi novel Dreams In Her Head was nominated for the 2014 Creation of Stories award. She is a full-time freelance editor, book designer, ghostwriter, and web manager. If there’s time left in the day, she devotes it to Faery Ink Press, her publishing imprint. When she’s not writing or fiddling up a storm, she enjoys computer games and making silly noises at cats.
