Author

Award-winning and USA Today-bestselling author of snark-filled adventures, Lydia Sherrer thrives on creating stories you love to love, and hate to leave. She is the author of bestselling urban fantasy series "Love, Lies, and Hocus Pocus - the Lily Singer Adventures," which has been described by Harry Potter fans as "Highly addictive!" and "a must read." She has most recently released the first in a trilogy of Gamelit novels with NYT bestselling author John Ringo.

Her work also appears in several anthologies, including the latest Black Tide Rising anthology, We Shall Rise, releasing in June 2021. Her first novel, "Love, Lies, and Hocus Pocus Beginnings" won the 2017 Imadjin awards, best in Urban Fantasy, while her short stories have garnered multiple accolades. Her award-winning short story "Ashes of Hope," a post-apocalyptic tale of survival, won a place in Almond Press’ 2015 short story contest, received the 2017 Imadjin best Short Story award, and was selected for Honorable Mention in the 2019 Writers of the Future 4th quarter contest. Her short story "Eye for an Eye" also received an Honorable Mention in the 3rd quarter contest of the same year.

Lydia grew up in rural Kentucky and realized her love of fantastic stories, cultures, and peoples early on. By the time she had graduated high-school she had traveled in seven different countries and studied three languages. She went on to get a dual BA in Chinese and Arabic, but after traveling the world she came home to Kentucky. Instead of becoming a marine biologist or a spy for the CIA (her childhood dreams), she decided to do something much more exciting and dangerous: write books for a living.

Lydia subsists on liberal amounts of dark chocolate and tea, and hates sleep because it keeps her from writing. Due to the tireless efforts of her fire-spinning gamer husband and her two overlords, er cats, she remains sane and even occasionally remembers to leave the house.
