About Me

January 2020

Hello there!

My name is Lyn and I’m a reader. I’ve been a reader for about fifty years now, and as you’d expect, I’ve become pretty good at it. Even so, I practice all the time.

I read mostly what is known as “genre fiction”: crime, fantasy and science fiction are my go-to reads. But I also enjoy general fiction, literary fiction and the occasional classic. In non-fiction, I prefer biographies, books about the craft of writing, and gardening books.

I’m also a writer. My first novel, to be published in February this year, features a gardener and is set in a fantasy world. There’s a hint of mystery too, so I basically wrote a book I’d like to read. It’s called Greenhaelan and it’s the first book in The Chronicles of Algarth.

My other current writing project is a first draft of the second novel of the series, Skalsinger. I’m almost done and aim to begin revisions in March.

I’ll be sharing some of my writing experiences on this blog as well as book reviews and reflections on reading.

Thanks for stopping by. I’d love to to have a conversation with you in the comments to this or any post on the site.

Happy reading and writing!
