Maia Sepp is an author of quirky contemporary and dystopian fiction. She left the tech sector to write books about sock thievery, migraines, the future, and...the tech sector. Her latest, "Wake," is the prequel to the "End Times Series" and is a story about climate change, unruly appliances, and finding somewhere to belong. It is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.

"The Sock Wars," an Amazon top-100 digital bestseller, is her first book. Maia's second novel is "The Migraine Mafia," a story about a nerdy thirtysomething's quest to come to terms with a chronic illness. Her third book, "An Etiquette Guide to the End Times," is a humorous near-future dystopian novella.
