Shop keeper. Story seeker.

H.R. Young-Lira is a Texas writer living east of Austin among the loblollies of Lost Pines Forest. 

She has always been fascinated with the extraordinary bits of ordinary lives. And after stepping away from a long advertising career advising clients when, where, and to whom they should share their unique stories, H.R. is now the one telling them. Her debut novel, published in February 2018, and is the first in a developing body of work she's currently referring to as The Stories. 

When she is not reading or writing, Young-Lira is most likely tending to her shop, Loblolly Lost, an online trove of curated collectibles for personal library spaces.
