Herika R. Raymer was born in 1974 and grew up consuming books, literally. Her father's collection of science fiction, reference volumes, and notebooks were all victim to her appetite. First by eating them, later by reading them. Her mother taught her the value of hard work and keeping focused while her father taught her more about the appreciation of literature and art than any school teacher; so she has been writing and doodling off and on for over 30 years. After much encouragement from both parents, Mrs. Raymer finally published a short-lived unfinished comic as a bonus story in a few issues of the comic series Dragonrok from Hanther's Tandra saga and, several years later, a few short stories (see Photos). Needless to say, she has developed a taste for it and continues to send submissions, sometimes with success. Her short stories have appeared in several anthologies (see Bibliography). Encouraged by this, a collection of stories is currently in the works.
Mrs. Raymer is also a freelance Editor. She began her editing experience as an Assistant Editor for a science fiction/fantasy and horror magazines in October of 2011. In late March 2012, she was promoted to Lead Editor of the horror magazine. She is the Founder and Lead Editor of the ezine Imagyro Magazine. She also does Book and Movie Reviews.
Herika R. Raymer married her supportive husband in 1997 and they now have two beautiful children, one lovely and energetic border collie, and live in West Tennessee, USA.
