As a teen, Maaja Wentz devoured shelves of mysteries out of admiration for noir style and Sherlock Holmesian brilliance. In university, she read speculative fiction to supplement her literature courses. In her stories, Wentz plays with elements of thriller, horror, and urban fantasy. She was delighted to sell “Inside of a Dog,” to Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine. Her supernatural thriller, Feeding Frenzy, was featured by Wattpad and won a Watty Award. Available in ebook and paperback.
