Down the rabbit hole.


Lydia Strohl has has written and produced for magazines, books, television, newspapers, & podcasts from CNN to America’s Most Wanted. She earned a BA in history and communications, MA in writing, and studied at the Iowa Writer’s Workshop. A lover of rabbit holes, her work in both fiction and non-fiction is grounded in research as well as oral history, a skill honed during a brief stint in Anthropology. Raised in the US, UK & Greece, she has lived in Singapore, Vienna, Tokyo, New York City, and Washington, DC —  and because of this, or despite it, still feels most at home in a foreign country. She currently lives in rural Virginia with her husband, son, and field spaniel.
