Lane Heymont was born in Pennsylvania. He has been a lifelong reader and writer. As a child, his grandfather would pay him $5 to read the best literature had to offer. Such titles included Ivanhoe, the Iliad, the Odyssey, A Tale of Two Cities, and more. Ironically, as a lover of fantasy and medieval adventures…he hated Ivanhoe with a passion.
He earned a BA in Liberal Arts with a focus on literature and history. He also holds a double minor in psychology and business. After college, Lane turned his focus back to writing. He has several short stories published and his debut novel, The Freedman and the Pharaoh’s Staff from Sunbury Press is available at all major retailers.
Lane belongs to a number of professional organizations including the Horror Writers Association, the Historical Novel Society, the Association of Writers & Writing Programs along with the National Writers Union. He also belongs to the Infinite World of Fantasy Authors.
When Lane’s not writing stories, he writes freelance for various websites on a range of topics. He focuses mainly on science, astrophysics, environmental studies, including Global Warming.
He currently attends Harvard University in Extension, pursuing an MLA in creative writing.
