Katje van Loon, genderqueer author, poet, and menace to society, resides in the suburban outskirts of the Greater Vancouver Regional District with zir spouse and their massive library of books, DVDs, and video games. Katje often dresses up like Kara “Starbuck” Thrace and avoids arrest for disorderly conduct.

While not writing, Katje can be found baking, knitting, crafting, subverting the heteronormative, gender-binarist paradigm, and killing filthy Cylons.

Katje currently has two book series out: The Third Age and The Borderlands Saga. Bellica, book 1 of The Third Age, can be found here. The Jade Star of Athering, book 2, can be found here. The Borderlands Saga currently consists of Stranger Skies, with plans for the rest of the books to come out in the next few years.

Katje’s most recent release is The Jade Star of Athering (November 2014), and zie is currently working on the next book in that series, Anala. The next year promises to be busy, with Katje planning on finishing Anala and From the Ashes, book 2 in The Borderlands Saga, as well as starting book 4 in The Third Age and book 3 in The Borderlands Saga.
