Why do I write?

It's simple, really. I write to delight readers (and myself) with storytelling. I write to get people to think and talk about the issues explored in my novels. And, most importantly, I write to inspire future generations of writers and artists to develop their own craft and put their stories out there for the world to see. Because more than anything, the world needs original, diverse stories. And I want to read them all – including yours.

Chanticleer Book Reviews

An intelligent and futuristic new YA series. Quasi-Orwellian realm riddled with a sinister and suppressive regime...enthralling!

E.E. Holmes, Bestselling Author of The Gateway Trilogy

“Readers will revel in The Vitruvian Heir. Kilroy deftly weaves a magic spell over the reader with her gorgeous prose, bringing Lore’s rich and vibrant steampunk world to dazzling life. I can’t wait to finally get my hands on the sequels!”

Zachary Flye, Zach's YA Reviews

“I highly recommend this book to lovers of steampunk, fierce and strong heroines, and The Delirium Trilogy by Lauren Oliver.”
