Did you know that I’m also writing video games now? Check out the free demo of my first thing Meow-der, She Wrote, a murder mystery with cats.

AND! I was lead writer and co-producer on Riley & Rochelle: a tale of Love and Pop in the 90’s — OUT NOW!


Born in Toronto, Canada, Natalia moved to Montreal to attend Concordia University’s Creative Writing program. After graduation, she toured internationally as keyboardist and singer with The Dears. Finding moments between touring and recording sessions, she began writing long and short-form speculative fiction. She is presently working on non-linear narratives, among other projects.

She has written and produced content for Montreal Review of Books, Cult Montreal, VICE, CBC, and Paper Magazine. Her fiction has appeared in Infinite Worlds #2, Luna Station Quarterly 035, Nevertheless: Tesseracts Twenty-One, and Selected Poems by Indie Rock Stars . She has panelled at Can*Con, When Words Collide, SXSW, NXNE, Music Yukon, and Pop Montreal. She works in arts administration and operations and is a member of the CSFFA.

Natalia likes cats, gardening, and playing video games. She lives in Montreal and can be found on Twitter and Instagram @nataliayanchak
