Emily Lavin Leverett

Emily Lavin Leverett is a fantasy, sci-fi, and horror writer, an editor, and an English Professor. Her works have appeared in Flash Fiction Online, Drafthorse: A Journal of Work and No Work, and Athena’s Daughters II. Her edited collections include The Big Bad: an Anthology of Evil and Big Bad II with John Hartness, as well as Tales from the Weird Wild West with Misty Massey and Margaret McGraw.  Her study of medieval English romance heavily influences her fiction. Recent scholarly work discusses violence—particularly flaying and cannibalism—as a means of constructing English Identity in the late medieval romances the Siege of Jerusalem and Richard Coer de Lyon.  Her first novel is book one in The Eisteddfod Chronicles published by Falstaff Books in 2016. Co-written with Sarah Joy Adams, the novel combines medieval romance and modern epic with urban fantasy. When neither writing nor teaching, she and her spouse spend time together reading, watching television and movies, rooting for the Carolina Hurricanes, and attending to their two rambunctious cats. She also blogs at Writing Under a Dancing Star.
