About A.M. Rycroft

I write dark fantasy books and horror short stories, and I’ve been lucky enough to win a few reader awards for my books.

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pa, which means I’m contractually obligated to watching the Steelers and Penguins, but I draw the line at the Pirates, because I can’t stand baseball.

I don’t blog as often as all the books about social media for authors say I should, but I’m pretty active on Instagram, Facebook, and sometimes Twitter.

So, if you don’t like emails and don’t want to subscribe to my newsletter, those other platforms are the best places to get to know more about me and what I’m working on. Fair warning, though, I’m upfront about my politics and my unhealthy love of Funko bobbleheads.

About My Reader Awards…

I’ve earned multiple awards for my work, including two for The Joy Thief (currently being revised for a 2nd edition) during the 2017 Virtual Fantasy Con. The Joy Thief won 1st place for “Best Sword & Sorcery Novel” and 3rd place for “Myth & Legends Fantasy”.
