Lyman Rate is an avid reader of military history as well as fantasy and science fiction. When not working or writing, he is reading and if not doing those, is usually spending time with his wife and two dogs. Lyman is married to his long-time girlfriend and with his dogs, Joplin and Zeus, has called Kansas home for most of his life.
In his free time, he likes to take nature walks and practice photography. His writing career started about four years ago when he was challenged by his wife (at the time girlfriend) to see if he could write a novel. Thinking this was a daunting task, he accepted the challenge and wrote his first book. Since then he now has two published books with a third being published.
Lyman is grateful to have the ability to write and truly hopes that those who read his books will enjoy them as much as he enjoyed writing them. Living in Kansas for the largest portion of his life has taught him that life is like a storm: It can be calm, but when that storm hits and everything is crazy, you hang on and the calm will return.
Lyman’s first book with Shadoe Publishing will be a fantasy fiction novel called:
