Lia Keyes grew up in London, where a large amount of her time at school was spent curled up on a green velvet window seat at the far end of the Gryphon Library in a mini-Hogwarts near the river Thames, reading everything she could get her hands on and not studying very much at all.
Many years, a marriage, two children, and a lot of international travel later, she now writes from a hobbit house in the woods in rural Virginia, where the night sky is full of stars.

Where do you write?
"In a tower in the woods, with no technology - just a notebook and a pen. The goal is to be either actively dreaming, or writing - even if I'm convinced it's rubbish.
When I reread it later, it's never as bad as I thought, of course. The trick is to 'just' keep going!"
