Hi! I'm John Krissilas, a sci-fi/fantasy writer based in Toronto, Canada.

My path to becoming a writer follows a much more Indiana Jones-ey and Don Draper-ey route than others. I spent my university days as an archaeologist, digging for artifacts in Jordan and falling in love with classical mythology. Recently, I've taken to the world of advertising, and so brands, insights, and marketing have become my forte.

My favourite aspect about writing isn't the writing itself, but the storytelling. I believe that the key to a great story is an over-arching concept - a theme - that drives the flow of the narrative and the conflict of its characters, and I'm particularly intrigued by the idea of using archetypes (universal ideas, characters, and story arcs) to make my stories more impactful.

What I'm working on:

With a passion for dark tales with heart, I've completed a collection of 15 dystopian short stories called IN-FUTURA (In the future...), with three of the stories published so far, in the online magazines MindFlights, Static Movement, and Aurora Wolf.

I've also completed my first YA sci-fi/fantasy novel, 151, which I'm in the process of seeking representation for.

Currently, I'm working on my second YA sci-fi/fantasy novel, called PERIAPSIS.

Visit my writer's blog at www.JohnKrissilas.com, where I'll post the latest news on what I'm working on, how my writing is coming along, and where you can view or download my latest stories.
