A writer of fantasy and non-fiction metaphysics, Lionrhod (pronounced LION-rod as the h is silent) caught the writing bug at age 8. Inspired by her writer mother, she wrote an extremely lousy and highly plagiarized story about a pony. From there, she went on to focus on science fiction and fantasy as well as romance, and when she realized that she was a Witch, articles on Wicca and Magick. As an avid Dungeons and Dragon's player, she has written several articles for that sort of thing and one of her pieces was featured in a TSR module way back before they became Wizards of the Coast. She has also written for Green Egg.
She tends to write slow, though that is changing!
She has been a witch and wysard (yes we spell it funny) for most of her life. She works as a professional psychic and a teacher of metaphysics. When she isn't glued to the keyboard, she enjoys hiking in the woods, gardening, cooking and yak wrangling. She is presently working on creating a rescue for large breed dogs and for retired animals.

Reading Lionrhod's story is like plunging into the many textured depths of intrigue. I am drawn in by the elegance of detail, noting sunsets "aglow with citrine and amethyst," and honoring winds with tinkling bells.
The age-old struggle between mother and daughter is shown by such lines as: "She waved a manicured hand sending the scent of ripened fruits and musk," contrasted with her daughter's feeling of awkwardness in the grime of battle practice.
The intricate imagery shows a world rich with ritual in a harsh environment with gut wrenching trysts with death.
I was enthralled from beginning to end, wanting more.
