Nyria has enjoyed reading since she joined the library at age seven and eventually began writing her own short stories. In her teenage years she found fantasy authors, Anne McCaffrey, David Eddings, sci fi author Isaac Asimov and the Discworld Series of Terry Pratchett. She was hooked!
Although she writes romance and historical romance, her main genre is speculative fiction and fantasy. She also writes under the name of Sue Perkins, Author but in future this name will be reserved for her middle grade fantasy books.
