★ Wattpad Featured Author ★ Wattys Shortlisted ★ Bird and Nature Lover ★ Artist ★

My main series follows a sassy, bisexual female assassin reaping vigilante justice in a ruthless criminal underworld - one dead murderer at a time. My stories are full of action-packed fights, daring escapes, thrilling intrigue, and a healthy dose of sarcastic humor, all in a unique fantasy world that is equal parts vibrant and sinister.

Aside from creative writing, I have a PhD in environmental science, and I researched bird ecology for 9 years. As such, I greatly value ecological accuracy in worldbuilding, and I have a side project of shoving as many subtle and not-so-subtle bird references into my stories as possible.

I also work as a freelance digital illustrator. I illustrate all my own book covers and maps, as well as lots of other nature projects. Some selections of my work are published in my Bennu Birdy Art Book here on Wattpad, and my full portfolio is at https://www.bennubirdy.com/.
