L.K. Hingey enlisted in the U.S. military at the age of 17, going on to get her degree in aeronautics from the University of North Dakota. After incurring spinal fractures while piloting the UH60 Army Black Hawk, L.K. left the military to pursue interests outside of aviation. The inspiration for The Elyrian Chronicles was born while L.K. backpacked 2,000 miles on the Appalachian Trail. Other influences include Hingey’s many passions. As a house-flipper, Certified Personal Trainer, and triathlete, L.K. is constantly breaking barriers and in turn, pouring the heart and soul of her many experiences into her writing. Upcoming works include Books III and IV of The Elyrian Chronicles.
