I'm Ciannon

(pronounced like Shannon. Parents.)

My YA debut WITCHES STEEPED IN GOLD is coming Winter 2021 from HarperTeen US, and HotKey Books UK

You can add it on GoodReads!

I write about girls with smart mouths who wield spears, and the boys who love them - eventually , and cheeky kids embarking on grand adventures.
