About Cheyenne

A Native American (Iroquois) from Grand Island, NY, I hold dual UK/USA citizenship and graduated with a 1st class Film BA from Cornwall’s Falmouth University. Since 2008 I have edited and written for OnScreen 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. Before the UK, I also lived on a First Nations reserve in Ontario, Canada, in Nashville, TN, and Sacramento, CA.

 

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

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

I am currently seeking representation.
