Sherrilyn Kenyon has sold more than 30 million copies of her books that she describes as “hard to categorize”. With elements of fantasy, science fiction, action/adventure, romance, and thriller, her books have found a wide and diverse audience. She joins me today to talk about her unlikely path to success, her writing process, how her older brother and comic books are responsible for her becoming a writer and much more.
The #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, who is proud of her mixed Cherokee heritage, lives a life of extraordinary danger… as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she’s found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With tens of millions of her books in print, in over one hundred countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with too.
In the last few years, she has placed more than 75 novels on the New York Times list in all formats including manga. This extraordinary bestseller continues to top every genre she writes, including young adult, manga, fantasy, science fiction and horror. Her current series include: The Dark-Hunters®, The League®, Deadman’s Cross™, Lords of Avalon® and Chronicles of Nick®.
Her Lords of Avalon® novels have been adapted by Marvel, her Dark-Hunter novels are a New York Times bestselling manga published by St. Martins. and the Chronicles of Nick® manga are published by Yen Press. And keep your eyes peeled, her books are soon to be hitting both the big and little screens by the same group who specializes in turning beloved literary series into major movie franchises.
