Lloyd A. Meeker
Lloyd Meeker can’t help what he writes – stories arising from the “between places”, the mystical overlapping of the worlds of matter and spirit, and the eldritch beauty that dwells there. That’s his natural habitat.
In addition to his written work, which includes novels, essays, poetry and short stories, he has served since 2008 as a judge in the Queer Foundation’s annual National High School Seniors Essay Contest. Its goal is to promote effective writing by, about, and/or for queer youth, and to award scholarships to the winners. (Members of the National Council of Teachers of English select the Finalists from schools across the United States.)
Published under the pen name Rowan Malloy, his fantasy romance Blood Royal won the 2013 Abalone Award, chosen by the Cultural, Interracial and Multicultural special interest chapter of RWA in the Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal category.
Happily ensorcelled by music, subtle energy healing, and the wonders of nature, Meeker lives with his very understanding husband in southern Florida among friends and family, orchids, and giant hibiscus that take his breath away every morning.
