Jenn Lyons’ childhood was spent in the safe havens of local libraries and bookstores, where even as her artistic talents began to develop she continued to nurture her love of science-fiction, fantasy, and noir detective stories. Being pale, not a friend of sunlight, and not much of a morning person, she set her sights on a career that would allow her to stay indoors or work at night (her favorite career pick was ‘cat burglar’) but she was devastated when she discovered that she would not, in fact, ever be able to marry Batman. Older but wiser, she turned from the life of a jewel thief to tackle a career as a graphic artist and illustrator, spending the next 20 years working in print media and advertising. The girl with too many hobbies (a list that included video games, table-top RPGs, LARPing, comic books, and costume design.) Jenn was irresistibly drawn to storytelling.
After making a dramatic shift in careers from graphic artist to video game producer, Jenn Lyons began to seriously dedicate herself to writing. She has finished two novels, Blood Chimera and Marduk’s Rebellion, is working on sequels to both, and just published her first epic fantasy, The Culling Fields.
Jenn Lyons lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband, Michael Lyons (who is also a writer — and may or may not be Batman,) three cats, and a whole lot of coffee.

A lovely, wonderful book that touches brilliantly on the sense of isolation and growing pains that being a teenager so often brings with it. Amy Good skillfully weaves a supernatural storyline into very realistic issues of pain, loss, betrayal, and abandonment that will be completely relatable to almost anyone. The book promises a sequel by the threads left hanging, and I can't wait for it.
