Olivie Blake is a lover and writer of stories, and is the pen name of Alexene Farol Follmuth. As Olivie, she has penned several independent and self-published speculative fiction projects. These include the webtoon Clara and the Devil, with illustrator Little Chmura, and The Atlas Six. Writing as Alexene, she's released My Mechanical Romance - her debut YA rom-com. Many of her stories involve the fantastic, the paranormal, or the supernatural, but not always. More often, her works revolve around our collective experience of what it means to be human (or not), and the endlessly interesting complexities of life and love. Alexene tripped and fell into writing after abandoning her long-premeditated track for Optimum Life Achievement while attending law school. She now focuses primarily on the craft and occasional headache of creating fiction. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, young son and rescue pit bull.
Lethally smart. Filled with a cast of brilliantly realized characters, each entangled with one another in torturously delicious ways, The Atlas Six will grip you by the throat and refuse to let go -- Chloe Gong on <i>The Atlas Six</i> As much a delicious contest of wit, will, and passion as it is of magic, this book is half mystery, half puzzle, and wholly a delight -- Holly Black on <i>The Atlas Six</i> Coolly horrific, brilliantly brainy and utterly compelling -- <i>Daily Mail </i>on <i>The Atlas Six</i>
