About Stacy King
Hello, and welcome to my Amazon author page! I'm a Toronto-based writer who specializes in fantasy and historically-influenced work for readers both young and young-at-heart.
Currently, I'm the co-author of the Young Adventurer's Guides for Dungeons and Dragons, introducing this classic role-playing game to a whole new audience with clear, captivating prose and fantastic new illustrations.
I'm also a writer and editor for the Manga Classics line, which delivers faithful adaptations of Western literary classics in a graphic style inspired by Japanese manga. My work for the series includes writing adaptations of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" and "Sense and Sensibility," Bram Stoker's "Dracula" and a selection of Edgar Allen Poe works, along with adapting a number of English-language scripts from the original Cantonese versions.
My interests include history, costuming, sci-fi, fantasy, role-playing games, travel and dancing.
