Heather Lyons writes epic, heartfelt love stories and has always had a thing for words. In addition to writing, she’s also been an archaeologist and a teacher. She and her husband and children live in sunny Southern California and are currently working their way through every cupcakery she can find.
Fun facts about Heather:
- In addition to being an author, I used to be an archaeologist, an elementary school teacher, and for an itty bitty time in my life, a movie critic. While I loved all those jobs, I think I love being a writer best.
- I wrote the Fate series as a challenge to myself–I wanted a love triangle that was different than a lot of those out there at the moment. I didn’t want it to be immediately easy to readers to pick a team, nor to figure out who Chloe would end up with. Who better to do that with than identical twin brothers?
- I love to travel and have been to some pretty spectacular places in the world, but I’m going to have to say that, of all the places I’ve been, the Isle of Skye was the most beautiful. I have this memory of sitting on a cliff overlooking the sea at about 11:45 PM, and the sun was just setting and there was fog rolling through the heather and it was just spectacularly breathtaking.
- The Fate series stems from my love of mythology. I always wondered . . . just what if the ancients were on to something? Just what if there were beings who controlled our lives, from the weather to our emotions to our crops? The Magicals in the Fate series are based on that. I also thought it was interesting to have one of the most powerful of these beings be a confused seventeen year old girl. Being a teenager is confusing enough, right? But to have all these powers put upon your shoulders? There were a lot of metaphors I stuck into this series about growing up, choosing your own path, and becoming who you want to be.
