Lydia Sherrer

     Author


Award-winning and USA Today-bestselling author Author of the Love, Lies, and Hocus Pocus universe, Lydia Sherrer is a fantasy author whose goal is to leave the world a better place than when she found it. With multiple series, short stories and novellas under her belt, Lydia has been writing for over a decade and enjoys nothing more than a good book, a cup of tea, and a comfy chair in the sunshine.

Growing up in rural Kentucky, she was thoroughly corrupted by a deep love for its rolling countryside, despite the mosquitoes and hay fever. Having been instilled with a craving for literature early on, and her parents had to wrestle books away from her at the dinner table, and hide them from her so she would go to sleep at night. Though she graduated with a dual BA in Chinese and Arabic, after traveling the world she came home and decided to stay there. Currently residing in Louisville, KY, she is supported by her wonderful husband and their two loud, but adorable, cats.

With an enormous passion for life, creating things, and discovering the world, Lydia crams her days with all sorts of adventure when not working on her next book. She loves to play her ocarina (think Zelda), and enjoys traditional archery, cosplay, larping, and art. She believes dark chocolate and tea are legitimate sources of nutrition, and one day hopes to visit every country in the world.

In addition to the award-winning Lily Singer Adventures and The Dark Roads Trilogy urban fantasy series, and her upcoming epic fantasy When the Gods Laughed, Lydia Sherrers short stories have appeared in several anthologies. Her award-winning short story Hope, a post-apocalyptic tale of survival, won in Almond Press 2015 dystopian short story contest and was awarded a place in the anthology, Apocalypse Chronicles. Her non-fiction essays have appeared in the Young Salvationist Magazine.

Lydia is not just out to write good books, but to make the world a better place, one story at a time. Her goal is to write with a purpose and inspire others to dig deep into the life they have been given and to dream big, because the world is built on dreams.

Sat 01:00PM The New Monster on the Block

Urban Fantasy is rife with traditional monsters and creative riffs on them. Is there ever anything new under the sun? SF has every kind of alien you could imagine, yet Urban Fantasy generally uses traditional monsters based on folklore. Larry Correia will moderate this panel of authors as they attempt to create a completely new and unique monster and the folklore to go with it. Will it be huge and ugly and covered in tentacles? Or furry and cute but hiding a vicious appetite?
