My Altern­ate World — I write short and nov­el-length fic­tion, mostly fantasy, though I’ve dipped my pen into sci­ence fic­tion, paranor­mal romance, mys­tery, and lots of others.

Gatekeepers Key by Krista Wallace

My big pro­ject (the one that got me star­ted writ­ing) is the Gate­keep­er series, fea­tur­ing Kyer Hal­id­an. Book One, Gate­keep­er­’s Key, was a final­ist in the Col­or­ado Gold Con­test and the PNWA Writ­ing Con­test, and won the Fraser Val­ley Writers’ School com­pet­i­tion. My pod­cast begins with this one.

Gate­keep­er­’s Key is avail­able on Chirp, Google Play, Apple Books and oth­er pop­u­lar audiobook platforms.

To Serve and Protect, a short story by Krista Wallace

I now have not one, but TWO audi­oshorts pub­lished. These have both been pre­vi­ously pub­lished in print, in pub­lic­a­tions you can find below. To Serve and Pro­tect is avail­able via Chirp and Apple Books.


The Inner Light

The Inner Light is avail­able in audio format on Chirp and Apple Books.


This was a delight­ful sur­prise. My short story, He Had it Com­ing, was giv­en Hon­or­able Men­tion in the Writers of the Future con­test. He Had it Com­ing fea­tures a char­ac­ter named Evan, who will even­tu­ally get her own nov­el. The story takes place in the same world as the Gate­keep­er series, and the nov­el will fea­ture a minor char­ac­ter who appears briefly in Chapter 6 of Gate­keep­er­’s Key.


My story, To Serve and Pro­tect, appears in this antho­logy from Bun­doran Press.

49th Par­al­lels fea­tures stor­ies of altern­ate Cana­dian his­tor­ies and futures, in hon­our of Canada’s 150th birth­day. It was nom­in­ated for an Aurora: Best Related Work.


Duch­ess Keeps Her Head is my for­ay into Romance. Who knew? It is pub­lished in Heart’s Kiss Magazine. See how many ref­er­ences to Lewis Car­roll you can find in the story!


At my first VCon, I met some fab­ulous women who run Pulp Lit­er­at­ure magazine. My friend Brenda Carre con­vinced me to enter their Raven Cov­er Art con­test, (write a story based on the cov­er art) and, lo and behold, judge CC Humphreys saw fit to give me the win. That story, The Inner Light, came out in Spring 2015.


My short story The Pageant — A Battle Maid­en’s Cun­ning Stunt is pub­lished in Elec­tric Spec Magazine, Feb. 29th, 2012 Issue.


In 2010, my short story He Had It Com­ing was a final­ist in the SiWC Writ­ing Contest.


In 2011, my short story To Serve and Pro­tect was a final­ist in the SiWC Writ­ing contest.
