I’m so happy you decided to visit my little corner on the web! If you’re new around here, my name is Courtney and I write under the pen name Lyra Parish. I am also one-half of the USA Today Bestselling Duo Kennedy Fox. When I’m not busy writing, I spend my time making YouTube videos about self-publishing or traveling. I’m very passionate about all things literary and my goal is to share my love of writing and the interworkings of publishing with as many people as possible. Thanks for being here and joining me on this journey.

Meet Lyra PARISH

Lyra Parish loves to write, glamp, and make YouTube videos in her spare time. Sweet love stories (along with the dirty ones) make her gush. She’s a firm believer that a person can never have too many cups of coffee, cats, or happily ever afters. When she isn’t busy writing under the USA TODAY Bestselling pen name Kennedy Fox with her partner in crime Brooke Cumberland, she can be found sipping various beverages from her drink buffet, pimp slapping excel spreadsheets, or volunteering for non-profit organizations. Lyra lives in Texas with her astronomy-loving, pilot hubby and black cat named Nibbler.

She’s been writing religiously since 2011 and decided in 2013 to start writing romance. Since January of 2014, she’s published over twenty novels. You can find her work on Amazon.

Lately, I've had people ask me how I can do all this stuff while holding down a full-time job. It's called work ethic. That's right. But it's not hard to be motivated when you do the things you love. You can control what you do, how much time you spend on tasks, so in...

Monday Rambles: show up every day.

I searched through my blog from the beginning to end to find a post that I had written about my bucket list items. Unfortunately, I can't find the post, but I wanted to go back and see what was in my head during that time of my life. I've kept this blog since...
