Lydia Larue was born in West Virginia in 1980, the first daughter of a single mother. She made her first professional novella sale in 2016 on Amazon. In 2006, she began to take classes at the local community college for psychology. That fall, she became a mother. Writing in the evenings and on weekends, she continued to produce stories for free. In the winter of 2016, her husband became a manager and her daughter was in school, allowing her to write full-time. Larue is the recipient of a 2012 daily deviation at Deviantart.

Lydia lives in New York with her husband, a dark fantasy novelist, as well as their daughter. They are regular contributors to several charities, including the rescue of exotic cats from abuse.

Over my life, I had several things that had happened that I believe would make a good plot for a book. I did settle on one thing.

When I was younger, my best friend died. At the time, I was not told what she died from because the disease was "looked down upon." My friend could not help that she was born with this and ultimately she did die from it. I believe that the time that we spent together, innocently enjoying our adolescence, and the terrible phone call my mother received when my friend passed away would make for a sad yet gripping novel.(less)

“The structured form of an outline helps us to keep track of all plot lines in a series, and of course, this diminishes the chance of plot holes for us.”

“There is nothing to writing. You nourish your creativity for months and years until you release your baby out into the world.”
Lydia Larue

“If men were not besot by their dogmas, they may have realized their own follies. It is the man who stands aside as evil happens that is truly the monster.”

“There is nothing to writing. You nourish your creativity for months and years until you release your baby out into the world.”
Lydia Larue

“Every being, created by God and unspoiled by man, is perfect, strictly defined and autonomous, entirely complete and at the same time with a built-in ability to grow and develop. This is the essence of its dignity and holiness. It is not an embodiment of God’s immense Personality, but only one of the realisations of His perfection.”
Danail Hristov, The End of the Jesus Era

“If men were not besot by their dogmas, they may have realized their own follies. It is the man who stands aside as evil happens that is truly the monster.”
