Hydra M. Star began her existence as one half of a set of twin fetuses. She ate her twin in utero. Almost from her birth—as an only child—she had an intense interest in all things mysterious and magical. As she aged, her taste matured and darkened from the Disneyesque styled fairy stories of childhood to the Erotic Horror she writes and publishes today. Her work is often inspired by legend and folklore, with violent werewolf sex being one of her favorite things. Consider your triggers warned.

In addition to writing, Hydra designs and hand-burns a line of pyrography items featuring symbols and signs from various occult and magical traditions. She is also the publisher of Infernal Ink Magazine and the owner of Infernal Ink Books, both of which

I get questions about my name a lot. Here's my answer to all things related to my name:

My given name was a very common one and growing up there were several girls in my town, around my age, with the same name. One girl and I shared both first, middle, and last names. So, as you can probably imagine, to clear up the confusion was given and went through a few different nicknames as a kid/teen before finally settling onto Hydra in my late teens. It was a reference to the many headed monster from Greek mythology and how often I changed my hair color/style...and, yes, "Hydra" is to this day what most people in my life (family and friends) call me. It's the name on the outgoing message on my cell phone, I get mail delivered to me under it, etc., etc., etc.

My senior year of high school I add the last name Star, making it Hydra Star, which I got from a Marilyn Manson song (What can I say? I was a teenager and his stuff was cool.) and started publishing some poetry under that name.

I added in the M. later, also as a reference to Greek/Roman mythology and Lucifer. Which made it Hydra M. Star.

In the end, all of this has really worked out for the best, because there's a romance writer that shares my original name and if I still used it that would make marketing and publishing and such all the more difficult.(less)
