Lyric James began writing romance after the stories in her head just wouldn’t shut up…and that’s really a problem when you’re standing up in front of a bunch of middle school students trying to instill in them a love of reading. She graduated from high school, went to school and quit because she had a car note to pay and has held such jobs as: receptionist, administrative assistant, medical clerk, and lifeguard. After she had her first child, she decided that she was an adult and was ready to go back to college. After receiving a degree in Organizational Management and a Master’s in Library Media and Information Technology, she now spends her days surrounded by one of the things she loves most…books.
Lyric has been married to her own hero for over thirteen years and has two daughters, one son, and a Doberman named Blue. She has one brother, several rather adorable nieces and nephews, super parents, and a wonderful grandmother who always reminds her that enduring love is possible even after 50 years of marriage to Lyric’s grandfather.
In 2006, Lyric sold the first story she ever finished to the e-publisher, Cobblestone Press. Since then, she’s sold contemporary, romantic suspense and paranormal African American and Interracial romance to Samhain Publishing and Ellora’s Cave.
Lyric is an avid “reader” and “listener” of books and her private book collection includes her favorite authors: Catherine Coulter, Julia Quinn, Nora Roberts (J.D. Robb), Jaci Burton, J.K. Rowling, Kate Collins, Janet Evanovich, Cinda Williams Chima, Charlaine Harris, Rick Riordin, Brenda Jackson, and Britt Andre.
