Sierra Ayonnie

 I started off as a writer around the age of 8 years old when I would take advantage of any computer that had Microsoft Word installed on it. I began to create stories, poetry, and write philosophical essays. By the time I was 13 I had read all of the classic writers and my understanding of the English language excelled so much that I learned Spanish in order to study multicultural literature. At 14, I was writing college leveled essays for all kinds of people around me which included the average student and the working adult.

By the age of 18, I began my studies on media, digital art, marketing, and networking. When I turned 20, I created my own degree, Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Creative Writing and Psychology, mastered a third language, Italian, and began to lead in multiple organizations. At 21, I self-published my first novel,  FIGS Book 1: Planet Tun. But, I’m not done yet… I’m still loading.

I like to think of myself as the daughter of Octavia Butler and George Orwell, in that, I love to create speculative fiction that ponders the questions of the universe while giving a unique experience with my words as I take my main characters on thrilling adventures.
