Keir grew up at the knee of Arilyn Moonblade, fought Thread on Pern, and went to Battle School with Ender Wiggin. 

After two and a half decades reading books of all shapes, sizes and genres, she finally settled on a favorite niche: Urban Fantasy. Since then, Keir has read (and re-read) The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, the Meredith Gentry series by Laurel K. Hamilton, and the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. You know, just to name a few. 

As a writer, she aims to achieve similar success at building deep and fanciful worlds with compelling characters that you will never admit you cried with, for or over.

Keir has published two short stories: The Clock Tower Girl (The Written Word Mag, October, 2008) and Silver Burdens (Lorelei Signal, July, 2008) and was privileged to become a Cropper Writing Workshop resident (2019) and a Voices of Colour fellow (2020) to the MVCWI, which was postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.



Keir joined the world of poetry in her angsty teens and never left. While most of her poetry is meant for the page, she has combined this with her passion for human rights as a youth facilitator and teaching artist for spoken word and performance poetry. Thanks to the never ending support of Trinidadian poetry group the Griot Guild and its founder, her husband Brendon Alekseii, she has also self-published two chapbooks, Kapheira and Awkward Poetry, both in 2019.
