About Carlie Martece
The Carlie Nooka Martece collective is a gender-fluid, autistic, dissociative system working as a visual artist, fetish model and independently published writer. Their books explore social issues and mental illness using rapid-paced storytelling and brutal comedy. They live simultaneously in a hilarious dreamworld and Yorkshire.
Martece wrote their first book, the semi-autobiographical Toxic Nursery, to provide insight into the often-misunderstood diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder. They have since received the dual diagnosis of autism, which explains how they have memorised pi to over two thousand digits! Deragon Hex: The Vipdile Key was their first work of science fiction, and has six hundred and sixty six digits of pi integrated into the narrative. Along with their latest novel, Chroma: Calanooka, these books form the Constructed Sanity Sequence, a series of autobiographies and novels that will become increasingly entangled as the overall story progresses.
If you enjoy their work, please leave reviews wherever possible. Leaving reviews, along with sharing links, is a great way to help independent authors.
The Carlie Nooka Martece collective is now living Toxic Nursery's sequel, and continues to share their creations with the world via their website at www.carliemartece.com.

Welcome to our mindscape. It’s a tragic, triumphant, and brutally hilarious place to be…
Honeysuckle wants love any way she can get it. If that means constantly falling for predators, at least it feels good. And with her hell-bent on a stubborn stiletto-stumble down a path of self-destructive debauchery, Management struggles to contain the chaos.
Alicia isn’t going under without taking the whole world with her. Arriving during their teens from the smoldering embers of their nightmares, the furious alter battles to drive away everybody in the Reality Show to establish safety.
As Honeysuckle and Alicia catapult everyone through terrifyingly toxic, madcap misadventures, can they stop hating each other long enough to heal?
In an original semi-autobiographical novel parodying the misery memoir, Carlie Martece explores the horrifying and hysterical truth of living with a dissociative identity disorder triggered by childhood abuse. With superb storytelling aimed through the sharp lens of macabre humor, they invite anyone struggling with self-acceptance to find hope in their wonderfully demented and courageous quest to love themselves.
Toxic Nursery is the first book in the Constructed Sanity dark comedy series. If you enjoy fascinatingly complex heroines, hard-won triumphs over trauma, and twisted absurdity, then you’ll be blown away by Carlie Martece’s beautifully authentic journey.

Leah lies in a coma, a victim of the evil Poisoner. Only Ash can save her. But Ash is a hunted criminal in the high-surveillance metropolis of Deragon Hex. Their three most useful allies are a night porter, a mutilated vagrant and a creepy dominatrix.
This tale begins at the blood-drenched site of a mass murder, then rewinds to play the toxic events that brought the killer to this point. One of Leah's four biggest enemies is hellbent on her demise. And only one sinister observer can reveal her true nemesis.
After leaving the ruined hotel suite in Blue Five Nine, the story careens through narcotised festivals, disastrous relationships, vulture trials, prison fights, televised violence and surreal dream sequences, with frequent social commentary from two voyeuristic alcoholics. The six-sided setting is populated by mentally vacant consumers and insidious social climbers, but also a helpful prison clerk, a mysterious night porter and a cat that drinks vodka.
Can Ash save Leah before the vultures strike?
Glamorous, melodramatic Leandra yearns to continue “modelling”, but her limbs ache and lizards ate her breadcrumbs. Shy, autistic Cal wants gainful employment. These lonely, mismatched siblings live a suffocating existence in the isolated desert city of Summerton. When a blue space captain called Kalakai arrives, offering Chroman army recruitment, their reality becomes increasingly intangible. Local news stations warn of an uncaptured murderer. Leandra applies lip gloss, models custard, and plans her birthday celebrations. Cal hyper-focuses on Calanooka.com, his online guide to the Chroma Sphere System. The strange pair cling to shreds of sanity while people around them disappear.
The third book in the Constructed Sanity series combines the terrifying honesty of Toxic Nursery with the complex yet captivating plot of The Vipdile Key. Could intergalactic battle training save these troubled siblings? Will they solve Summerton’s mysteries or be consumed by demonic forces? Where are they? When are they? And why does a vengeful witch haunt their cryptic dreams?
Rescue is not coming.
