Andrea Wrauley (née Wrobel) is a fiction + travel writer currently living in Toronto. While tending toward identity-driven fiction, memoir, and screenplay, she also works diligently on her stand-up comedy routine, as well as script supervising and story editing in the bustling Toronto film and TV industry.
Often speculative, Andrea’s fiction work is driven by the visible and invisible elements of daily life— the delusions, disorders, and/or powers that lie beneath our greatest will— explored playfully through gender deconstruction, trauma, and magick. Andrea's non-fiction work is fuelled by her dissection (obsession?) of present-day regimentation — the expectations, policies, cultural laws, and social norms that restrict (control?) 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, Aphra Behn, and Virginia Woolf, Andrea learned that literature informed by personal history and observation is highly impactful.
You can find her latest fiction, autofiction, editorial, and travel work on this website.
Andrea is currently penning two novels.
