Hi, this is Hywela Lyn, I'm so thrilled to be part of this great new Blog, with so many wonderful paranormal authors. A little bit about myself -

I was born and lived most of my life in Wales, although I am currently living in a small village in England. My first two names are Hywela Lyn, which I use as my penname, although I've always been called just 'Lyn' by my family and friends. For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed reading and writing Science Fiction/Fantasy and Adventure stories, and the occasional Western - always with a strong romantic element. Although most of my stories tend to be futuristic, the worlds I create are usually untainted by crowded cities and technology, embracing the beauty and wildness of nature. My characters often have to fight the elements and the terrain itself.

My first novel, 'Starquest', a futuristic romance was released on 29th August and will be in print next week on 5th Decemeber! The sequel, 'Children of the Mist' is contracted with the same publisher and my novella about the Greek Muse, Terpsichore is available now as an e-book and also as one of three stories in Book III of The Wild Rose Press's 'Song Of The Muses' series.

I love all animals, especially horses and enjoy Western riding. I have two horses, two ferrel cats and a 'rescued' Jack Russell terrier called Bouncer. Oh yes, and a long suffering husband called Dave!

Oh I must tell you - I've been in the Author Spotlight at LASR all week - if you pop over now, you can see my little feature on an Old Welsh Mansion called 'Nanteos'. I've also just learnt that 'Starquest' is up for Book of the Week at LASR, so if you fancy reading the review, here's the link to the site LASR -Voting doesn't start until Saturday and finishes just before midnight on Sunday - so if you care to vote - thank you so much, I'd really appreciate it.
