December 2013


Lane Robins was born in Miami, Florida, the daughter of two scientists, and grew up as the first human member of their menagerie. When it came time for a career, it was a hard choice between veterinarian and writer. It turned out to be far more fun to write about blood than to work with it. She received her BA in Creative Writing from Beloit College, and currently lives in Lawrence, Kansas, with an ever-fluctuating number of dogs and cats.

She also writes under the pseudonym Lyn Benedict.

Thank you so much for reading!

There are a couple of reasons at play here. First, Janus and Psyke were in a more complex situation than Mal and Gilly who had discussed their future several times. Maledicte, the book, was more of a romance than Kings and Assassins is. And frankly, they ran away from their problems!

Kings was more of the journey Janus took, seeing where unfettered ambition might lead. The end was more about his personal epiphany, and adjusting his long-held goals. He's looking at a kingdom beset with problems and deciding to help fix them, with Psyke by his side. So his book really ends more on the tone of beginning.

Second, I was hopeful at that time that there would be a third book, so ending Kings where I did would have been less sudden. But alas, it was not to be. (less)

And since they're self-pub, they're falling a little bit by the wayside as I work on new series. I do have tons of ideas for Sylvie and her crew, and hope to get the time to work on them! Thanks for asking!(less)

More January Recommendations

January 2021’s being nice to me or I’ve just hit a lucky streak with enjoyable books. Last time, I talked about two good books; this week I’m going to talk about two even better good books.

So, Piranesi by Susanna Clarke. Naturally. I was a fan of her writing in Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell, so of course I perked up when I heard she (finally) had a new book coming out. Then I heard the premise:
