Kyrian Lyndon

Biography

Kyrian Lyndon is the author of Shattering Truths, the first book in her Deadly Veils series. She has also published two poetry collections, A Dark Rose Blooms, and Remnants of Severed Chains.

Kyrian began writing short stories and fairy tales when she was just eight years old. In her adolescence, she moved on to poetry. At sixteen, while working as an editor for her high school newspaper, she wrote her first novel, and then completed two more novels at the ages of nineteen and twenty-five.

She is forthcoming about being a person with many years of recovery, as well as a trauma survivor. Throughout her journeys, she expressed her thoughts through poetry, embracing every challenge to triumph over adversity. In her conviction that learning, growing, healing, and evolving is a never-ending process, she remains as grateful for the dark days as she is for every flicker of hope and light. She considers herself a cheerleader for those trudging on against all odds in the hopes of living their dreams.

Born and raised in Woodside, Queens, New York, Kyrian was the middle of three daughters born to immigrants --her father from Campochiaro, Italy; her mother from Havana, Cuba. She has worked primarily in executive-level administrative positions with major New York publishing companies.

Kyrian loves nineteenth-century British literature, parallel universe fiction, and dark romanticism. She also enjoys music, art, history, fitness, and cooking.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I am not patient when it comes to certain things. Honestly, I didn't want to jump through hoops, feel pressure, relinquish control. I wanted to get my work out there. It's all about connecting with the readers today. That's the most important thing. It doesn't matter anymore how you do it. The readers will have the final say as to whether what you write is worth reading.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am new to Smashwords, but so far it has been an easy, painless process, and it's fast. I can't ask for more.
