Born and raised in Toronto, ON Canada, Natalia moved to Montreal, QC in 1999 to attend Concordia University’s Creative Writing program. After graduation, she immediately began touring and performing internationally as a musician. An unofficial delegate for Canadian culture, she worked with her band, The Dears, to help shine the spotlight on the Montreal music scene in the 2000s.
Finding moments between touring and recording sessions, she completed her first (presently unreleased) novella. Speculative fiction allows Natalia to enter a liberating world without rules, an area beyond the social anomalies of modern life, where technology and human consciousness are easily manipulated. She is presently working on her second book.
She has written for VICE, Huffington Post Canada, and Cult Montreal, and her fiction has appeared in Matrix Magazine and Selected Poems by Indie Rock Stars.
Between tours, Natalia lives in Montreal with her husband, two children, and two cats.
