Kasey Pierce is an author and editor from the Metro Detroit area. She’s one of the editors of Donald Robertson’s graphic novel, “Verissimus: The Stoic Philosophy of Marcus Aurelius”–a sweeping epic about the life of Marcus Aurelius.

Her prose horror novella, “Pieces of Madness”, gave her residency on the comic convention circuit in 2015. She joined the ranks of Source Point Press shortly after and created the “Norah” series. This acclaimed movie-optioned sci-fi made her a household name in indie comics–eventually becoming a flagship creator for the company. Kasey has sold-out at many conventions in the US, Canada, and overseas where she’s also presented her panel on marketing and direct sales in indie comics, “Good Luck with That”. Source Point Press released her Viking horror series, “Seeress“, in 2019 and “Norah Vol. 2″ in 2020. Her next work, scheduled for release in 2021, is “Norah Vol. 3” and a space opera about Alzheimer’s, “The Other People Who Live Here”.

Currently, she’s one of the editors of Donald Robertson’s graphic novel, “Verissimus: The Stoic Philosophy of Marcus Aurelius”–a sweeping epic about the life of Marcus Aurelius.

On her Stoic practice:

Although I have to remind myself of this all the time…never ever let yourself be intimidated–it’s illogical. No matter how much money the other guy has, or how much experience they have on you, we’re all meeting at the same place: the graveyard. Hence, they’re not better than you in any way, shape, or form. Once you embrace the reality of impermanence, it makes the difference between what matters and what doesn’t crystal clear. In the grand scheme, the only thing that matters, in the end, is who you loved, how you loved, and your legacy. Everything else is merely a collection of data that no one will hardly remember.
