A.L. Knorr Founding author

You will believe. A Canadian living abroad.
About the author

A Canadian married to a magician-in-the-kitchen (which is good because I struggle with toast), books have always been my favorite place to hang out. I'm fond of nautical history, creamy coffee, and flannel sheets, although maybe not so much the latter now that we live on the Mediterranean coast. Turkey is hot. Moving on.

Why write? I can’t not write. I just don’t feel right when I don’t write. I have more fun inside my head than I do in the real world. I believe that life is storytelling. Whether it’s on stage, screen, page, or just a chat over a coffee with a friend, we learn through the stories we consume and the stories we share. My head has always been full of stories, and when there are a lot of characters bumping elbows in your brain, the only remedy is to get them down on paper and into someone else’s head.

Young women characters are fun to write because they’re complicated and sometimes they do weird stuff. I should know, I was a young woman once. Readers tell me they enjoy my strong female protagonists and unexpected twists, so I must be doing something right.

My goal is to create mesmerizing stories of elemental transformation, adventure, friendship, and love. I write what I enjoy reading, so my books are cuss-free and low-steam. My aim is life-like characters you’ll fall in love with and well-crafted plots that keep you turning pages late into the night.

So what are you waiting for? Get lost in the world of mermaids, faeries, fire mages, and demon hunters. Sign up for my A.L Knorr's VIP Reader List to receive free fiction, exclusive content and to be notified when my next book is released: www.alknorrbooks.com
