Having studied writing and English literature at Middlesex university, Kia Garriques began writing short stories like most graduates but with a unique influence of manifesting dreams. These dreams, which sometimes became nightmares, were to become the authorial signature to the inspiration and reasoning behind her work.

From an early age Kia would keep a diary of the visions and animated scenery that her eyes witnessed and every night, writing down the events and character images she had seen. Over the years this diary became known as her ‘Dream Diary' which, day by day, Kia would refer to.

Her first story, “The Invisible Alien Watcher”, was published by Micro Horror in 2009 and reprinted by Pill Hill Press in 2011. This short story was just an insight to the creativeness that Kia was capable of.

As a child Kia suffered from a great fear of storms; just the sound or mention of them would send unpleasant shivers down her spine. As 'storm' was her worst fear and the adjective which described her personality best, Kia began writing under the name Kia Storm. Over the years Kia had short stories such as Locked Up, The Watcher and Fly Away Butterfly published in paperbacks and online.

Whilst writing these short stories, Kia was also working on a book in which her dream diary was highly consulted. The diary contained page after page of sketched drawings of scenery, characters, words and colours which inspired her, and Kia used all of this to create and paint a world that would invite and entice fiction lovers worldwide.

Now in 2012 Kia Garriques prepares to enlighten and invite readers into her world; a world which asks
the question of why we are here through an exciting chain of events and characters which children of all ages and adults will enjoy.

“Innovera Yakov- The Journey of A Thousand Eyes” is due to be released the end of this year. It is a book of Rowling’s magic in Cameron’s fictional world.
