S.L. Perryman was born in Des Moines, Iowa on September 16th 1990. The youngest of 9 girls raised by a hard working single father, she and her sisters were raised on a small farm in southern Iowa where she passed the time taking care of chickens, bunnies, pigs, cats, and dogs. When she wasn’t hard at work helping with the animals, she and her older sisters would borrow the neighbors mules and ride bareback along the gravel roads to their friends houses to play.
At the age of 14, she met the love of her life, Christopher. They share an epic love story that has been the envy of most of her sisters as well as friends and others in the community. Shortly after graduating high school with honors and 6 years of dating she and Chris married and 2 years later gave birth to their first son Phoenix.
Finding new love in her new born son, she decided to become a full time stay at home mom. After working her whole life, she found it difficult to not be contributing anything into the household so she turned to writing. After 3 years of planning, drafting, editing, and rewriting, The Realms Series was brought to life in digital form.
When she isn’t wrangling a 3 year old, S. L. Perryman is working endlessly to craft the worlds and creatures of her dreams to bring them to life through the written word. She draws inspiration for her works with the help of her son’s active imagination and hopes to one day create worlds that rival those of J.K Rowling and J. R. R. Tolkien.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with family and friends, talking nature hikes, gardening, and learning whatever she can wrap her mind around.
