My name is Maggie Derrick and I’m a bisexual author and artist based in Vancouver, Canada.
Maybe you’re here because you’ve heard about the Starborn Series. This queer romantic fantasy trilogy begins with The Star and the Ocean, which was one of 50 winners in the 2017 Watty Awards — a global writing competition that saw over 280,000 entries that year. The book was invited to join the Wattpad Paid Stories program in April of 2019. Book two of the series, The Wind and the Horizon, and book three, The Fire and the Sky, are also available now!
I’ve also had my work published in a couple of anthologies. My short story “A Happy Place” was included in Love & Bubbles: an Anthology of Queer Love Stories Under the Sea. An excerpt of my forthcoming novel, The Witch’s Patron, appears in emerge19 — a student anthology from Simon Fraser University’s The Writer’s Studio, where I studied creative writing.
When I’m not writing or drawing, you’ll probably find me watching cartoons, listening to true crime podcasts, or crying over dogs. Sometimes all at the same time. I’m pretty talented that way.
