About Cheyenne

A half-Native American (Iroquois/Mohawk) with dual USA/UK citizenship, I grew up on a gorgeous little island in the Niagara River called Grand Island, between Niagara Falls and Buffalo, NY. After a few childhood years on a Canadian First Nations reserve and then around the USA, I relocated to the UK where I graduated with a 1st class Film BA from Cornwall's Falmouth University. I also lived in Scotland and Bristol, and have now spent the majority of my adult life in the UK. Living in so many places has given me a love of travel, exploration, and learning about histories and cultures other than my own. 

From 2008 to 2019, I edited and wrote for OnScreen, a British film magazine. In 2022, an essay of mine will be published in Dan Koboldt’s PUTTING THE FACT IN FANTASY
by Penguin Random House.

 

My fantasy writing for adults and YA is inspired by my travels around the Cornish coast, the Scottish Highlands, the English countryside, Venetian canals, Greek islands, Alpine villages,

and anywhere else I'm fortunate enough to explore. 

 

I love writing character-driven emotional journeys as seen through a fantasy lens.

My themes often include self-doubt, missed chances, lost loves, and the stories we believe (about others & ourselves) — usually involving myths and folklore from around the world, historical secrets, and future possibilities.

I am currently seeking representation.
