Blair MacGregor

Blair MacGregor

Blair writes fantasy novels—adventurous, epic, and dark. Her short fiction has appeared in Cicada and Writers of the Future. She's a graduate of Viable Paradise and a curator for StoryBundle.

She speaks and teaches on a variety of topics—writing and self-publishing, failure and resilience, parenting, martial arts, wellness—for audiences ranging from a couple dozen to a couple thousand. Most evenings, you can find her training or teaching martial arts, acting, or stage combat. In between all that, Blair hikes and camps, grows organic produce, and indulges in the occasional ziplining excursion. She loves traveling to places both wild and domesticated.  She currently lives in Colorado.
