Kaja Brown

Kaja Brown is a writer, specialising in political, humorous fantasy but not exclusively so. She also writes articles (as you shall see) along with very honest short stories and anecdotal pieces. But mostly fantasy novels. Her inspirations are Terry Pratchett, Charlaine Harris and Sarah Waters as their novels are wonderfully fantastical or very real representations of life. Kaja’s main goal with her novel writing is to present lots of thought provoking themes in entertaining ways and to bring more LGBT+ characters into the fantasy genre.

She is also a philosopher, and finds ethical and moral issues very interesting. She is a great believer in equality, mental health awareness, and communication. We should just talk all the world’s problems out today so maybe tomorrow will be a more understanding day. This is partly what she wants to achieve in her work with Rife.

Oh, and she likes cats. In the words of Sir Terry Pratchett’s character, Death, when asked what made life worth living: ‘Cats… Cats are nice.’
