Hello, I’m liselle

A young adult fantasy and sci-fi writer

my writing brand is…

Worlds beyond ours

Always involving some sort of magic or alien or something similar, I get bored of real life

Messy black girls

They a real big mess, but they’re finding their way, and I kind of think that journey is fun


The voices I write are ones I truly think connect to issues teens face in an real way

#Blackwitchesbook – title tba

Simon pulse summer 2021 & 2022

Deal Announcement:

Sarah McCabe at Simon Pulse has acquired Liselle Sambury‘s untitled debut YA fantasy novel and its sequel. After failing to come into her powers, 16-year-old Voya–a Black witch living in near-future Toronto–is forced to chose between losing her family’s magic forever, a heritage steeped in centuries of blood and survival, or murdering her first love, a boy who is supposedly her genetic match. Publication is scheduled for summer 2021 and summer 2022; Kristy Hunter at the Knight Agency brokered the two-book deal for world English rights.

Only slightly rambling but helpful videos for writers

If you’re a writer who has no idea how to get published, low key dying in the query trenches, or high key just really f***ing confused, these videos are for you. I post a YouTube video every Tuesday with helpful stuff about writing and publishing, with some dashes of my own journey thrown in.
