About DeAnna Knippling

Every summer as kids, we would host one group of cousins or another and jump off hay bales, create mazes by crawling the patterns through the tall grass, and steal green apples out of the garden. We also branded calves, killed chickens, and stole steak knives to threaten skunks with. But that's growing up on a farm for you.

Now I write fantasy, science fiction, and horror--and most of it comes from the worlds that I created as a farm kid, one way or another.

My first novel, Choose Your Doom: Zombie Apocalypse, was published by Doom Press in 2010 and can be purchased through Meta Geek.

"This is how I like my zombies: fast and funny. Choose this book, and you won't be choosing your doom. You'll be choosing hours of gooey, gory hilarity."
- Steve Hockensmith, New York Times best-selling author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

My short story, “The End of the World,” about fairies on the Great Plains, received an honorable mention in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 3.

I also write murder-mystery party games for Freeform Games in the UK.

Review by: Jan Tangen on Oct. 10, 2017 :
: historical-fiction, magic, urban-fantasy, short, minneapolis, illusionists

It's just before the Wall Street crash and the secretary meets the grifter who also can see the illusion in the street. When he shows up at her flat, her roommate tells them both about the magical talents. Together they confront the real con artist who is cheating people and ruin his scheme. Twisty.
Well written with fine imagery and good character development. Enjoyable!
