About Lou Yardley

Hiya,

I'm an author. And a weirdo. I'm sorta part Deadite and part Hobbit. Sometimes I feel like I'm four goblins in a trench-coat masquerading as a human.

Up until recently, I've lurked mainly in the horror realms, but now I'm taking my first gore-coated steps into the world of dark fantasy. Rather than just write one fantasy book, I'm creating a whole world... and a dragon's horde's worth of books.

"Banished" was released in 2020 and was my first adventure in the monstrous world of Venari. Summer 2021 will see it joined by "Creep" (a novella) and "Everfrost" (a werewolf flavoured novel). After that, I've got a whole series planned and plenty of spin-offs.

By joining me on Patreon, you'll be the first to hear of any news, you'll get first look at the stories (depending on the tier you've chosen), and you'll be taking me one step closer to my dream... to be able to write about Venari full time. There are also opportunities for you to get exclusive merch... merch is always fun.

Thank you for checking out my page!

Blood, guts, and hugs,
Lou
