About the Author:

Byrd loves creating fiction that delivers fresh stories and unexpected twists.

Whether it is a Doppleganger who was once a medieval knight now working in college administration, or a fairytale Red Riding Hood escaping a post-WWI wolf pack, her characters feel real. That Celtic goddess at the pet store? She’s someone you know. A medieval queen fleeing an abusive marriage? No matter the time period, that woman could exist today.

Described by one reviewer as “A literary glass of bourbon after a long day,” while another wrote “When I get a Byrd story, I know I’m in good hands,” Byrd gives readers a satisfying read.

With a B.A. in journalism, she worked at various newspapers as a reporter and sections editor. Her careers have included being a museum director, a horseback riding instructor, a kid’s party planner, and a manager of a veterinarian’s office.

However, she always returns to her first love: writing stories, dreaming up characters, and creating fascinating flights of fantasy.
