D.A. Straith

I'm D.A. Straith (they/them), and I’m a writer of speculative fiction and weird fantasy. I'm a nonbinary white settler based in the Greater Toronto Area. When I'm not making stuff up for myself, I'm making stuff up in marketing for a software company, or tending houseplants, or moving around.Twitter: @dee_straith
