Porch Signing: Lara Buckheit, A Realm Of Ash And Shadow

Come on by The Ivy to meet Lara Buckheit, author of the new page-turning fantasy novel A Realm of Ash and Shadow, and to have your book signed!

A Realm of Ash and Shadow is the story of a young princess whose overwhelming desire to belong and a craving for power has her making choices that make it harder and harder to guard her heart against the man who’s bound to protect her, the god she’s vowed to hate, and the darkness that’s growing inside her.

Lara Buckheit, author of A Realm of Ash and Shadow, was born and raised on the Eastern Shore. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Wilmington University, is a 2021 WriteMentor Mentee, an avid writer (and reader) of spice, and one time she met Taylor Swift’s dad. She started writing at a very young age, mostly fanfiction centered around women with swords and men with devilish grins. And she hasn’t stopped since. When not writing, Lara can be found drinking tea, hustling for her day job, or reading from her endless TBR pile. Lara currently lives in Charlottesville, VA, with her husband, dog, and thirteen house plants named after fictional characters.
