About The Speaker

Jenn Lyons

Formally a video game producer, she now writes full time. A long-time devotee of storytelling, Lyons traces her geek roots back to playing first edition Dungeons & Dragons in grade school and reading her way from A to Z in the school’s library. The Ruin of Kings, the Name of All Things, and the Memory of Souls, the first three books in Lyons’s five-book debut epic fantasy series from Tor Books, A Chorus of Dragons, are available now. The fourth book in the series, the House of Always, arrived 2021.

Favorite Book Quote

Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off—then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball.
