About Lydia


Welcome to my corner of the internet! 

I’m Lydia, and I love writing—some of the time.

(I’ve never hated it, but sometimes I avoid it. [The mood will pass.])

I also love coffee and doughnuts, modern history, anything sparkly, semi-colons, Sherlock Holmes, flowers, romantic-era classical music, lipstick, the smell of birthday candle smoke, cheese, hats, big cities, the anticipation that hangs in the air during autumn . . .and the list goes on.

My favorite authors are John Buchan, Gene Stratton-Porter, and P. G. Wodehouse

When I’m not writing, or, to put it otherwise, when I’m procrastinating, I’m usually creating art. Next to writing, my biggest obsession is illustrating. You can find my Etsy shop, The Illustrated Life, here.

My current WIP is The Good Adventurers, a family drama set against a backdrop of England and France in the 1910’s.

The sequel, The Four Colonials, is in the stages of a first draft, and was my NaNoWriMo 2016 novel.

You can check out my storyboards on Pinterest, here and here.

  1. Hi! I just wanted to drop by and thank you for subscribing to my blog 🙂 I don’t have many subscribers right now, so it’s always exciting to see someone new. When I saw that you had a blog, I figured I might as well check it out. It’s really cool to meet another like-minded person! Have you been to any writing conferences?


    1. Thank YOU for dropping by! I agree that it is wonderful to find people who think the same way I do. 😀

      I haven’t yet been to any conferences. Maybe someday I’ll be able to; I do know of many writers who have. 🙂
