YA Urban Fantasy with SF elements

An #ownvoices novel set in Toronto, 2099. It follows sixteen-year-old black witch Voya Thomas whose ceremony to come into her powers goes terribly wrong. Now, she must kill her first love before the eve of the Caribana carnival, or her family will lose their magic forever.

Liselle Sambury


I’m a writer represented by Kristy Hunter of The Knight Agency. On this site, I share information about my writing projects and occasionally blog posts with craft advice, bookish discussions, and more.

I’ve been writing since I was thirteen as a hobby, always leaning towards the fantastic and fictitious. Once I got into my teen years I became more serious and finished my first, albeit not great, novel when I was eighteen. Since then, I’ve written two more full-length novels, my latest being VOYA CALLING.

I started my book blog under the name Lunch-Time Librarian in 2015 as a way to connect to the reading and writing community. Since then, I’ve made amazing long-lasting friendships that were monumental in my commitment to writing regularly. All those blog posts are now hosted here along with new content, so be sure to check it out!

I also design websites like this one! I have affordable transparent pricing perfect for writers on a budget. You can learn more and view my work at Liselle Sambury Website Design


I bring the intention.

They bring the blood.

We both pay for the gift of magic.
