J.M. Frey

Toronto, Ontario
J.M. Frey is an author, fanthropologist and professional smartypants. With an MA in Communications and Culture, she’s appeared in podcasts, documentaries, and on television to discuss all things geeky through the lens of academia.
Her debut novel TRIPTYCH was nominated for two Lambda Literary Awards, won the San Francisco Book Festival award for SF/F, was nominated for a 2011 CBC Bookie, was named one of The Advocate’s Best Overlooked Books of 2011, and garnered both a starred review and a place among the Best Books of 2011 from Publishers Weekly.

She quickly followed that up with an epic-length feminist meta-fantasy-trilogy-in-four-books, THE ACCIDENTAL TURN SERIES, and THE SKYLARK'S SAGA, a steampunk duology about a girl vigilante and her mysterious rocketpack.

THE SKYLARK'S SAGA was signed to a shopping agreement for an animation series in 2018, and her feature-length screenplay TO A STRANGER (based on "Performance in a Leading Role" by Lori Summers) is currently in pre-production with a Toronto-based house. J.M. Frey was also the grateful recipient of a Toronto Arts Council Grant in 2018, and is currently working diligently to complete the granted project, and a 2019 Watty Award for her Wattpad-exclusive novel A WOMAN OF THE SEA.
