100 Word Bio

Jenn Lyons lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband, three cats and a nearly infinite number of opinions on anything from Sumerian mythology to the correct way to make a martini. She is a video game producer by day, and spends her evenings writing science-fiction, fantasy and paranormal mysteries. A long-time devotee of storytelling, she traces her geek roots back to playing first edition Dungeons & Dragons in grade school and reading her way from A to Z in the school’s library.

Her science-fiction space opera series, The War In Heaven, current consists of the first book, Marduk’s Rebellion, and its sequel, Making Shiva. Her paranormal mysteries, Blood Chimera and Blood Sin, chronicle the experiences of a Kidnap & Ransom expert who discovers he is an unwitting member of a race of vampiric shapeshifters who secretly control society. She is currently working on the follow-up, Blood City.

Long Form Bio

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 making things up storytelling.

After making a dramatic shift in careers from graphic artist to video game producer, Jenn Lyons began to seriously dedicate herself to writing. Her science-fiction space opera series, The War In Heaven, current consists of the first book, Marduk’s Rebellion, and its sequel, Making Shiva. Her paranormal mysteries, Blood Chimera and Blood Sin, chronicle the experiences of a Kidnap & Ransom expert who discovers he is an unwitting member of a race of vampiric shapeshifters who secretly control society. She is currently working on the follow-up, Blood City.

Jenn Lyons lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband, Michael Lyons (who is also a writer — and may or may not be Batman,) a bunch of cats, and a whole lot of coffee.
