Around 4th grade, J. Lynn began writing stories. She also developed an interest in history around that time when she was gifted the
book “The Discovery of the Titanic: Exploring the Greatest of All Lost Ships” (which she still owns). Her creative writing also developed in part through having multiple pen pals in her school
days (in the “time before email” times!).
Outside of reading voraciously and driving kids to multiple after-school activities, J. Lynn enjoys a perfectly steeped cup of hot tea while writing and editing her next projects, one is a YA adventure involving the women of King Arthur's time and the other is a historical fiction about an empress who lived in ancient China. Her next novel about ancient Egypt is in the early planning stages.
