Arianna Kiriakos

Hello! I’m Arianna Kiriakos, and I've been writing as long as I can remember. I completed my first novel at thirteen, and basically haven’t stopped since. I aim one day to be a traditionally published author. My work tends to lean into mysteries with sassy characters and historical or travel influences. As of late, I’ve also dabbled in historical-inspired court intrigue. My biggest writing influences are Louisa May Alcott and Agatha Christie. Think female-centric, large family webs, intricate plots and secrets.  

On the non-writing side of things, I have completed a Master’s in Modern History from King’s College, London and I have two Bachelor’s degrees in history and criminology from the College of William and Mary. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, and have recently moved to the city proper. When not writing, I can be found exploring museums and small bookstores, drinking far too much tea, and spending time with my loud, Greek family.

Award Type
