Abrianna Leaming is an author, reader, equestrian, and traveler with a Bachelor in Creative Writing from the University of the Fraser Valley. Her debut novel, Akairya, is the first half of a duology that stars dragons, elves, and a lot of magic. She finished editing the final draft while studying abroad in Ireland, and started working on the second half, Alkairyn, before she moved back home to Canada. Her novel writing is imbued with her passion for exhilarating stories that are set in rich worlds that captivate the reader, and all she wants is for people to enjoy reading her stories as much as she enjoys writing them.
During her time as a student at UFV, Abrianna was the Vice President of the first student-led Creative Writing club at the school – CreWri. In the first year of the club, she led writing workshops based on description and world building, and in doing so, discovered her love for guiding fellow writers in discovering their craft.
When Abrianna isn’t writing, she is either sitting somewhere with her nose in a book, working horses, playing video games like Mass Effect, or losing herself to the seductive embrace of Netflix. Sometimes you can find her on one of the many hikes in the Fraser Valley, where the beauty of nature helps inspire her to continue writing novels.
