From Frankfort To Metropolis: Kentucky Author Recognized For Books About Lois Lane

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) A Lexington writer is making a big name for herself in the literary world by writing a series about Lois Lane's origin story.

Gwenda Bond used to work for the Cabinet of Health and Family Services in Frankfort and now, she's living the dream.

“I always say it's like an overnight success 17 years in the making,” she told LEX 18.

Bond is originally from Jackson County. The daughter of two school principals, Bond said she has always had an affinity for writing.

“I was the obnoxious kid who loved stories from the get-go,” she said.

In the span of a month, she's been mentioned not only once but twice in Entertainment Weekly upon the debut of her most recent novel 'Triple Threat', the latest in a Lois Lane origin story series.

“I try not to examine too hard, because obviously there are a lot of people who would like to write these characters and I’m just grateful that I get a chance to,” Bond said.

She was recruited by DC Comics to write the series. As a child, Bond said she was obsessed with the woman most commonly referred to as Superman's girlfriend.

Bond is proud to bring Lois Lane's story to the forefront saying that she feels like the universe brought the two of them together.

With her 9th book under her belt, Bond says she's not quite sure what's next, but should Hollywood come calling, she says Lois Lane is camera-ready.

“I feel like it's a gift to be part of the history of a character that's been around this long and really give her the spotlight,” she said.

You can pick up a copy of Bond's latest book 'Triple Threat' at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington.
