ABOUT COURTNEY:
Courtney Young writes under the pen names Lyra Parish and is one-half of the USA TODAY Bestselling duo Kennedy Fox. 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, she can be found glamping, pimp slapping excel spreadsheets, making YouTube videos, or volunteering for non-profit organizations. Courtney lives in Texas with her astronomy-loving, pilot hubby and black cat named Nibbler.
