Mama. Wife. Writer. Leader. Teacher.  lk herndon is passionate about education, leadership, literacy and using kindness to make the world better.

Shaped by her experiences growing up Southern, lk herndon tells sweet and simple stories. She earned her BA in Political Science, her MFA in Creative Non-Fiction and an EdS in Leadership.  She has spent a decade and a half teaching high school subjects such as: AP Language, American Literature, & Honors World Literature and has also conducted several Writing Workshops on the collegiate level - both graduate and undergraduate.

Most recently, lk herndon has moved out of the classroom and into administration where she can use her passions lead teachers.

While her days are spent in the halls of the high school, the balance of time is spent as Mama to her Monogram Mafia (alongside her very favorite partner-in-chaos, former high school sweetheart and now husband of a decade, BJ). Sneaking in time to write between the snuggles and squeals, lk herndon graces the world with a sneak peak into real life adventures sprinkled with overgrown imaginations and uncommon sense. 

Currently she is working on a collaborative project with her husband to be released Summer 2019.



In Fall 2015, lk herndon's children's series was published with three books debuting the whimsical world of Petunia, a pink whale who loves dance and is fiercely loyal to her friends.  "Petunia", "Save the Day, Petunia" and "Take A Bow, Petunia" can be found on Amazon.
