Yolandie Horak can often be found typing away at the computer or nibbling at the end of a paintbrush. When not writing or making art, she spends her time cuddling her daughter and husband, reading, fangirling, or gaming.
She resides in Calgary, Canada, but misses the milk tart and koeksisters she frequently ate in her hometown of Johannesburg, South Africa. She’s a steampunk enthusiast and writes gaslamp fantasy with political and medical flavours. Her books appeal to lovers of grim tales with loads of intrigue and drama.
She is also the founder of LuminLore, an eclectic small business celebrating the union of art and stories.
She has been a passionate blogger since the dawn of time, and updates her blog weekly with art tutorials, her thoughts on writing, book reviews and experiences as an immigrant.
