[1] Kenyon's novels have an "international following" [2] with over 70 million copies in print in over 100 countries. [3] Under both names, her books have appeared at the top of the New York Times , Publishers Weekly , and USA Today lists, and they are frequent bestsellers in Germany, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

Early life

Sherrilyn Kenyon was born in Columbus, Georgia. [4]

Personal life

On January 7, 2019, Kenyon filed a lawsuit against her husband and his assistants, claiming they had poisoned her over a number of years in order to sabotage her health to his financial gain. After her husband filed for divorce in March 2018, the suit alleges that tests concluded her levels of lithium, tin, barium, thorium and other metals were at a dangerous level of toxicity, indicating that they had “systematically poisoned her since 2015". [5] Her husband‘s statement about the lawsuit called her “a brilliant fiction writer who has made it apparent that she cannot discern between fiction and reality”. [6] [7]
