Annastaysia Savage is both a writer and an artist. She earned her BFA in Fine Arts, with honors, from Arizona State University. She is one residency shy of an MA in Creative Writing from Wilkes University and is currently pursuing her MFA in Painting and Illustration from The Academy of Art University.
Both writing and art have always been in her life, beginning at age five with her first publication of a short poem and her first art exhibition entry that took first place. She has had several short stories published in the last few years, her most recent a flash fiction piece for children and young adults in Crow’s Nest Magazine called “Grimalkins” and a short story in the anthology: Journalstone’s 2010 Warped Words for Twisted Minds.
She writes anything and everything, from memoir to horror to young adult to fantasy. She is a member of The International Women’s Writing Guild, The Association of Writers and Writing Programs , the Society of Children’s’ Book Writers and Illustrators, the National Art Education Association and the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
She currently resides on the South Eastern Connecticut Shore with her husband, dog and three cats, one of which is a ghost, in a haunted house that was built in 1650, all of which give her plenty of inspiration and fodder for the imagination.
She will be signing books and reading from her latest publication, “Any Witch Way”, a Halloween inspired tome for middle age children to young adults.
