About K. A. Cook

K. A. Cook is a panalterous, aro-ace, genderless, autistic feminist who experiences chronic pain and mental illness. They write creative non-fiction, personal essays and novels about all of the above on the philosophy that if the universe is going to make life interesting, they might as well make interesting art.

They are the author of several short fantasy stories combining ridiculous magic, cats, disability, bacon, mental illness, microscopic gnomes, aromanticism, the undead, verbose eldritch entities and as many transgender autistics as any one story can hold.

About the Series: The Eagle Court
Einas ein Iteme, youngest son of the Iteme monarchy, only thought to announce to the world his true identity—that he isn’t a princess. When his declaration results in his father’s murder and a civil war fought between his necromancer mother and his elder brother Paide, the city-state of Ihrne edges further towards chaos. Peace between his surviving relatives, restitution paid to neighbouring Arsh and the support of the Convocation should go some way to restoring equilibrium. It doesn’t reckon on the politics of the court and the civilians of Ihrne when it comes to accepting an undead regent, an autistic heir and a foreign general. When the bones of civil war have been too-soon laid to rest and words go unheard, how does one survive the world for long enough to change it?

The Eagle Court is a series of short, introspective stories about marginalised characters trying to survive their own struggles and take on the hell of politics.
