About Sonia Lyris

I am the author of The Seer from Baen Books. I am co-creator of the playing card and divination deck, Rochi, from King of the Castle / Campaign Coins.

The Stranger Trilogy is the sequel to The Seer and is available in ebook and print

The first book, Unmoored, is available at your bookseller of choice.

The Seer Saga is the multi-book story of Amarta, who can see into the future, and comes to the attention of those in power.

Everyone wants answers. No one want the truth.


Rochi is a playing card and divination deck that I co-created with award-winning game designer James Ernest, published by Campaign Coins. The deck is 54 cards, each of which is a vibrant, splendid window onto the world of The Seer and The Stranger, each one illustrated by artist Mark Joseph Ferrari. Beta deck here, for free. The final deck, with coins and tokens for play, kickstarting in 2021.

Other works

My stores have appeared in various online and print venues including Wizards of the Coast anthologies, Asimov's SF Magazine, and Uncle John's Bathroom Reader. I'm pretty proud of that last one. Mainstream, it is.

A full bibliography is here.

Among the other hats I sometimes wear, I serve as the Communications Director of an independent consumer guide to premium chocolate, which includes ratings, reviews, & tools for finding, buying, & appreciating the world’s best chocolate. Chocolate. FTW.

At a hundred patrons, I will write the next book in The Seer Saga, the book that follows Landfall, book three of The Stranger Trilogy.
