She graduated from Vanderbilt University. She went on to earn a Master Degree from Georgia State University and an Advanced Certificate in Creative Writing from Stony Brook University.
GAME OF SHADOWSis her debut novel from TOR/Forge Books, an imprint of Macmillan Publishers. Her first project, a graphic novel, THE 49TH KEY from Heavy Metal sold out of its initial printing upon release. Currently in comics she’s writing FIREBRAND with Jessica Chobot for Legendary Comics, now in its second season. Also with Legendary Comics, she’s writing ACURSIAN with John Barrowman and Carole Barrowman.
Lewis resides in the sunshine state of California. When she’s not chained to her laptop, she’s usually playing with her big fluffy Golden Retriever, or running, or at one of the bookstores or comic shops by her house. And always drinking coffee.
