Larry Dixon

Larry Dixon is a respected, funny, friendly and completely approachable guy with a diverse and adventurous history. He is a "Player Character," as he puts it, whose life seems like fiction---but he is completely for real.

Son of a Delta Force career commando and an Oklahoman farmgirl, Larry grew up in many American and European settings, usually haunting the local art museums and hobby stores. At age 9 he saved up his babysitting money and bought his first typewriter, intent upon writing and illustrating his own novels. Northern Italy is where his passions for painting, sculpting and storytelling took root, as well as his interests in state-level diplomacy, early computers and rocketry.

Larry's work is in a dozen languages and millions of copies in print, and he's been a Guest at over 200 conventions worldwide over the last 25 years. BUT---he's available for work, don't be bashful about asking. He isn't ALWAYS off on some adventure. Be bold! Reach him at gryphonking@gmail.com anytime.

His ongoing, everchanging decades-long romance with Mercedes Lackey is legendary. Larry feels equally comfortable around generals, rock stars, fans, firefighters, victims, cops, media and movie makers because, hey, he's an Okie. Definitely chat with him or ask questions at panels about approaches to your work---nothing makes him happier than helping someone with their avocations, and bringing more beauty into the world.
