Meet the Author

Mercedes Lackey was born in Chicago Illinois on June 24, 1950. The very next day, the Korean War was declared. It is hoped that there is no connection between the two events. She graduated from Purdue University in 1972 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. This, she soon learned, along with a paper hat and a nametag will qualify you to ask “would you like fries with that?” at a variety of fast-food locations.
She had always written from her early teens, and developed this hobby by writing fan-fiction for various amateur magazines. In the 1980s she took a job programming computers for a major airline and as a consequence moved to Oklahoma. At this time she met both Marion Zimmer Bradley (author of THE MISTS OF AVALON) and C J Cherryh, both of whom helped mentor her from amateur into professional writer. Her first book was published in 1985. In 1990 she met artist Larry Dixon at a small Science Fiction convention in Meridian Mississippi. They began working together, and were married in Las Vegas at the Excalibur chapel by Merlin the Magician (aka the Reverend Duckworth) in 1992. They moved to their current home, the “second weirdest house in Oklahoma.” She has many pet parrots and “the house is never quiet.”
Misty is approaching 100 books in print, and her foreign editions include Russian, German, Czech, Polish, French, Italian, Turkish, and Japanese. She is the author, alone or in collaboration, of the Heralds of Valdemar, Elemental Masters, Secret World Chronicles, 500 Kingdoms, Diana Tregarde, Heirs of Alexandria, Obsidian Mountain, Dragon Jouster, Bedlam Bards, Shadow Grail, and other series and standalone books. A night-owl by nature, she is generally found at the keyboard between 10 PM and 6 AM. For more information, see her website: www.mercedeslackey.com.

    Stuck in sample mode.

    Seems to be stuck in sample mode. Even though I purchased it, it only lets me access the first ten pages.
