Get to know Lydia...

When and what and where did you first get published? My first fiction publications were drm-free audio, bought by Sniplits before the site even went live. They took a drabble called “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” (a shout-out to Stephen King) and a group of four fifty-worders.

Why do you write? Writing is how I try to answer the questions in my head.  Also, it’s the only way I know how to draw.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? When I write fantasy (I don’t always), it’s because it’s the proper vehicle for the story I need to tell.  

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? In fantasy, my favorite author is Ray Bradbury; favorite story is “In A Season of Calm Weather”, with “Uncle Einar” and “The Exiles” close seconds.

Do you blog? Where? I blog at, in the persona of a small black and white cat.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? “Missed.”
