About Sienna Tristen

Sienna Tristen is a Canadian artist and author of speculative fiction and poetry who explores queer platonic partnership, radical compassion, and mythmaking in their work. Her award-winning fantasy novel The Heretic’s Guide to Homecoming came out from indie arts collective The Shale Project in 2018, and they have a verse novel, The Insomniac’s Assistant, published with Penrose Press. A purveyor of many skills and talents, they can also lead a yoga class, speak to you in three and a half languages, and climb forty feet in the air on a pair of silks. They are currently working on their second novel.

In addition to writing, Sienna has nearly a decade of graphic & layout design experience, and works freelance to create beautiful, professional indie books for individual authors and small presses. Visit the Services page (coming soon!) to learn more.
