H.B. Lyne lives in Yorkshire with her two children and two cats. When not juggling family commitments, she writes dark urban fantasy novels, purging her imagination of its demons. Inspired by the King of Horror himself, Holly aspires to be at least half as prolific and successful and promises to limit herself to only one tome of The Stand-like proportions in her career. Other idols include J.K. Rowling, Joss Whedon and Robert Kirkman, and she will often be spotted wearing Harry Potter, Firefly or TWD apparel.
