Tannera Kane


I'm an urban archeologist with a strong interest in exploring urban ruins, ghost towns, and abandoned structures. My novels are composed in the genres of science fiction, treasure hunting, and parody/comedy.

My never-ending sci-fi series contains treasure hunting elements, antiques, junk recycling, and archeology. Hmmm, I wonder why...lol. As for treasure hunting novels, try them out. If you like Laura Croft, you'll love Orianna Killborn.

Smashwords Interview

Who is Tannera?
OMG, there are so many answers to that question. In Fall 2013, I came out of the closet. Yes, that’s right. I’m a geek. I wear glasses to prove it. My life revolves around geekness. That includes cosplay, science fiction, science, and other things most people don’t understand. Despite a college degree in computer science, I’m an autodidact, which means I educate myself. Having an overabundance of common sense, paranoia, and an IQ of 138 helps too.
Are you a genre writer?
Absolutely not. I hate marking categories on sites like Amazon and Smashwords. I always often include elements from more than one genre. There is no category for treasure hunting novels. Where do they go? Thrillers? Mystery? Action? Adventure? Sometimes I list the books in two categories. There are too many subgenres in science fiction. Most of the time I indicate my SF novels are military, but they’re much more than that. There is drama and elements of fantasy, action, adventure, history, science and so forth.
