starfest facts
Kelley Armstrong has published dozens of novels, including the New York Times bestselling paranormal suspense series Women of the Otherworld , the modern gothic Cainsville series, the young adult urban fantasy trilogy Darkest Powers and the teen fantasy series Age of Legends. She has also written the Nadia Stafford crime series, and several serial novellas and short stories.

The oldest of four siblings, Armstrong came from a middle-class family in Sudbury, Ontario. After graduating with a degree in psychology from the University of Western Ontario, she then switched to studying computer programming at
Fanshawe College so she would have time to write. She has been a full time writer since 2002.

Armstrong was been nominated for the Young Adult Canadian Book Award two years running, and won the Aurora Award in 2014 for her novel The Rising.

The appeal of Armstrong’s novels, which have appeared numerous times on bestseller lists, lies in their evocation of the lives of her werewolves, ghosts and demons. She has been described as someone who not only writes interesting page-turners, but has also achieved the unlikely goal that all writers strive for: a genre of her own.
