Lia London was born in Oregon and raised all over (including 3 years in Europe). She earned two degrees from Western Oregon University. Upon graduation, she served for 18 months as a missionary in Guatemala, teaching cholera prevention, literacy, and gospel messages. She worked as a high school teacher and ESL instructor for college students for a few years before becoming a stay-at-home mom and launching her writing career.
London currently plays the organ and teaches a children's Sunday School class at her church, and volunteers in a martial arts studio, working with foster children. She also is the founder and chief administrator of a network called Clean Indie Reads, an organization of over 3300 authors, illustrators, and marketing specialists who work in the independent publishing industry. She loves milk chocolate, extra-cheesy pizza and cuddling with her cute dog to watch old Star Trek (all versions) episodes on Amazon Prime.
