Meet the Author

Hi! I'm John, a strategic planner and fiction writer based in Toronto.


By day, I spend my time looking for the “big idea” to use in my next great advertising campaign. By night, however, you'll find me in a coffee shop or at the running track, brainstorming the “big idea” to use in my next great story.


My favourite aspect about writing isn't the writing itself, but the storytelling. I believe that the key to a great story is an over-arching concept - a theme - that drives the flow of the narrative and the conflict of its characters. I'm particularly intrigued by the idea of using archetypes (universal ideas, characters, and story arcs) to make my stories more impactful.


What I'm working on:


With a passion for dark tales with heart, I've completed a collection of 15 dystopian short stories called IN-FUTURA (In the future...), with three of the stories published so far, in the online magazines MindFlights, Static Movement, and Aurora Wolf.


I've also completed my first YA sci-fi/fantasy novel, ONE FIFTY ONE, which I'm in the process of seeking representation for.


Currently, I'm working on my second YA sci-fi/fantasy novel, called PERIAPSIS.


Visit my writer's blog at JohnKrissilas.com, where I'll post the latest news on what I'm working on, how my writing is coming along, and where you can view or download my latest stories.
