Who is Lydia Caatt?
Lydia was raised in a small town in Oregon. Though there was not a lot to entertain the residents- without driving for 30 minute- her imagination gave her all the excitement a young girl needed. As a child she was raised in a dysfunctional family. Make believe soon became her coping mechanism for the life she could not control. Growing up in a struggling, abusive, and broken home helped her learn that her strength was all she had and her imagination was always there to get her through. When she got older she married a less than perfect man. He proved to be a struggle to live with and he forbid her imagination to flow freely. That didn't turn out so well. Lydia is now remarried to the man of her dreams and together they have five children. Through the growth and strength she learned through having the support of her husband she has been able to see several of her dreams become reality. She holds a leadership position as a cardiac registered nurse, she serves in her community, she has raised her four children in a safe home with her husband and grown to love her beautiful step daughter as well. Through the love and support of her family she rediscovered the joy of story telling. She currently has several projects to bring to her readers as well as several more stories waiting to be discovered.].
.Lydia used to tell her children stories when they would travel. In 2011 she was told she would need brain surgery. The surgeon could not guarantee her survival, but informed her that without the surgery paralysis and eventually death was in her near future. Faced with this life altering event she decided to write one last story for her children just in case she did not survive the surgery. The fight for Danyon trilogy was born from this life experience. It was also this trilogy that motivated her to continue her writing. She has two more trilogies and a book based on real life events to follow the Fight for Danyon trilogy.
