I write science fiction and fantasy under the name A.S. Kreckel, but I normally go by Abby.

Life is both dark and funny, and I love writing stories where lightness, humor and banter are balanced against darkness and complicated moral problems that can’t be solved by talking it out.

I studied Slavic Literature in undergrad with a focus on classics and science fiction. As a result, I’m a sucker for beautiful tragedy, and I’m never satisfied by perfectly happy endings.

I rediscovered my lifelong love of writing in 2018 when in a voracious search for new books to read, I decided to write the exact books I wished existed.
