I’ve gathered the Green Bone Saga fan art I’ve received into a gallery on Pinterest, for my (and your) viewing pleasure. Seeing fan art is one easily one of the best things about being an author. It’s an incredible feeling every time I’m told that my stories and characters have inspired readers to be creative. I’ve tried to credit the artists as best I can, and of course, always welcome additions. Visit the Green Bone Saga fan art gallery here.
Both of my published works last year are finalists for the 2020 Locus Awards!

I have a new short story published in the MIT Technology Review this month. “I (28M) Created A Deepfake Girlfriend And Now My Parents Think We’re Getting Married” is a near-future comedy drama about a young man who turns to technology to solve his relationship problems and gets in over his head. You can read it online as part of the magazine’s youth issue.
I was at the Viable Paradise Workshop, where I’m writer-in-residence this week, when I received the news that Cross Fire had been named Best YA Novel at the 2019 Aurora Awards for best Canadian speculative fiction. I’m delighted by this win; even though sequels are often harder to write and better than their predecessors, they are so rarely recognized when it comes to awards. Thank you very much to the members of the Canadian Science Fiction & Fantasy Association for this honor.
Announcing my first foray into writing comics! I’m thrilled to share the news that I’ve joined Marvel and will be co-writing the monthly Sword Master & Shang-Chi comic book with Greg Pak, with art by Ario Anindito.
Sword Master is a new Chinese superhero originally published in Asia. Each issue of Sword Master will feature a 20-page story about Sword Master, translated from the original Chinese comic, and a 10-page ongoing story about Sword Master & Shang-Chi, written by me and Greg. My first co-written issue will be Sword Master #4, which comes out on October 2.
