Author Interview: Lindsay J. Pryor
Lindsay J. Pryor writes dark, intense, multi-layered Gothic dark paranormal romance set in the dystopian world of Blackthorn.
Discovered after being a twice-finalist in an international romance writing competiton, Lindsay’s Blackthorn really captured the imagination of her publisher as a fantastically vivid and complex world, one which readers will utterly lose themselves in. She paints this multi-layered world effortlessly, and uses it as the setting for intense forbidden romances.
With six-figure sales, Blackthorn regularly tops Amazon’s U.S. and U.K Gothic romance charts. Books from her series have also reached number 1 in four sub-genres of paranormal romance, as well as being a number 1 ‘Most Wished For’ paranormal romance on Amazon UK. She has been a Top 50 bestseller (#47) in Amazon.com’s main kindle charts and has skirted the Top 100 on Amazon UK. The first three Blackthorn books have since become available on audio via Tantor Media.
Lindsay has been creating stories since she was nine years old, when she quickly decided that fantasy was more interesting than reality. She thought she’d grow out of it but, more than thirty years later, writing remains her passion.
Lindsay holds an honours science degree in Psychology and Communication, is a qualified Psychology lecturer and English teacher. She taught for eighteen years, primarily to improve literacy for children with special needs, before becoming a full-time author. She’s intrigued by mythology, likes to relax watching films and her favourite box sets, and is a keen supporter of animal welfare. Lindsay was born and grew up in South Wales but now lives in the South West of England with her husband of seventeen years, their rescue bunny, and a plethora of wild woodland creatures.
