Lyra Selene was born under a full moon and has never quite managed to wipe the moonlight out of her eyes.
Lyra grew up on a steady diet of Lloyd Alexander, Susan Cooper and Ursula K. LeGuin, dreaming of fantastic worlds both near and far. Her first novel, written when she was eight, followed exiled warrior princess Jade and her unicorn companion as they braved the deeps of the Forbidden Forest in search of the Lost Wizard Bendar. These days, Lyra writes young adult speculative fiction. She is inspired by world mythology, brooding landscapes, and the alchemy of love.
Lyra is represented by literary agent Ginger Clark of Curtis Brown Ltd. She lives in New England with her husband, in an antique farmhouse that’s probably not haunted. Visit her blog for musings on writing, reviews of novels new and old, and occasional pictures of cats.
