I could start with- My mom read to me when I was a kid-  she did, but I’ll skip that part. I really wanted to be an artist while I was growing up. And I wasn’t to bad at it either.

I’m going to fast forward to my heart throbbing teenage years. I used to read a ton of romance books. I’m sure most teenage girls do. I mean, back then my dreams consisted of the handsome man rescuing me from immanent danger, and I so wanted a happily ever after. Not in the fairy tale way, but in the way of having a soul mate.

Then a girlfriend of mine introduced me to soft porn. I must of had a permanent blush on my face throughout the couple of books I read. I stopped reading them because I really wasn’t a soft porn kind of teen.

My mom was fairly strict so I wasn’t allowed to watch horror movies until I turned 16, even though I did. My first was The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I refused to walk alone a night for at least two months after watching it. I lived in an area where canyons surrounded me, and my imagination firmly told me anything could happen. Eventually  I watched The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock. My imagination soared with that movie. I kept my eye on any swooping, congregating birds for a long time. A few months later I happened to walk in on my mom watching The Stand by Stephen King. Stephen King peeked my interest to the point where I’ve read close to every book he’s put out. Although I Love Stephen King I wouldn’t want to live with his dark imagination. I’d find monsters in everyone and jump at the slightest sound. LOL

In my 20’s I started dreaming of writing a book, but I couldn’t seem to come up with a whole story. Every story I thought of started in the middle of a book and ran on until the ending. No beginning would come to me. And since I had a gypsy personality back then (I couldn’t seem to stay in one spot for long) I let the dream slide into the recess of my mind.

To make a long story short I got pregnant and ended up settling down. On my off time from a busy life books became my escape again. When my son hit his teenage years and gave me the “I don’t need you hovering over me but I still need you speech” I decided to finally sit down and write, just to see if I could do it. My first book, Blake- A Montana Dayton Novel flowed out of me easily, and many other stories continued to rise to the surface. I now have two novels and two short story books out on Amazon and a few other places. The stories continue to flow. I’m in the process of writing a YA and another Dark Fates short story. Life has gotten busy again, so now it’s all about finding the time to write.

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures.
