Bio:

The #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, who is proud of her mixed race heritage, has lived an extraordinary life where she’s risen from extreme poverty of being homeless with an infant son to becoming one of the most successful and influential authors in the world.

In the last few years, and in spite of the market crashes that have set many authors back on their heels, she has continued to rise and placed more than 80 novels on the New York Times list in all formats including manga (being the only American author and woman to do so the week the first one landed on the top 5 of that list). 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® Nevermore™, Silent Swans™ and Chronicles of Nick®.

Her Lords of Avalon® novels have been adapted by Marvel, her Dark-Hunters are New York Times bestselling manga and are #1 bestselling adult coloring books. And keep your eyes pealed, 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.
