E.J. Wenstrom believes in complicated heroes, horrifying monsters, purple hair dye, and standing to the right on escalators so the left side can walk.

Her award-winning fantasy series Chronicles of the Third Realm War features a peculiar mashup of Greek mythology, Judeo-Christian folklore, and an extra dash of her own special brand of chaos. It starts with Royal Palm Literary Award Book of the Year Mud (#1), Tides (#2), and Sparks (#3), as well as the prequel Rain.

When she isn’t writing fiction, E.J. Wenstrom is a regular contributor to DIY MFA and BookRiot.
