Andrea Wrauley (née Wrobel) is a writer tending toward identity-driven fiction, memoir, and screenplay.
Often speculative, her fiction work is driven by characters living with undiagnosed delusions, disorders, and/or powers, and her work is often explored through gender deconstruction, trauma, and magick. Andrea's non-fiction work is powered by her dissection of 21st century regimentation -- the expectations, policies, cultural laws, and social norms that restrict humans in response and communication, especially when it comes to race, gender, and ability.
Andrea has been writing her entire life, penning daily in her private journals for over 20 years. While she's always been a reader, it is in books like "Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger and "Orange is Not the Only Fruit" by Jeanette Winterson that she found early authorial inspiration. Paired with brash, unfiltered work by authors like Sylvia Plath, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Virginia Woolf, Andrea learned that literature informed by personal history and observation is highly impactful.
You can find her latest fiction and biographical work regularly published on this website. Aside from these articles, Andrea is currently penning two novels, and freelancing as a script coordinator in Toronto, Ontario's bustling film and television industry.
Andrea lives in Toronto with her partner + their two cats, Buddy + Lua.
