8187575 I was born on March 14th of 1985, in Rosario, Argentina. At the age of 10 I wrote my first fairy tale as a way to deal with a very painful earache. I found writing comforting and distracting. After that day, I continued writing every time I felt the need of leaving realty behind.
By the age of 18 I had around 120 pieces written, between fairy tales, poems, life’s reflections and other stories. I always wanted to publish my stories but never had the confidence to do it. After my son was born, my husband and my best friend gave me the confidence that I needed to start writing my first book.
I decided to start translating and eventually publish one of my favorite stories, hoping to bring the fantasy and imagination back to all those kids and young readers that would adventure themselves into its pages. That’s how Chronicles of the Nocturnal Forest was born.

The Diary of Amanda (Stories of the Fairy of my Dreams, #2)

Before waking up I went to the ancient wooden house, outside the forest. I knew the path very well. I met Patrick at the entrance and together we went down to the basement, where a large collection of books and journals awaited to be opened.

My interest was settled on a big chest. I knew there was something important there, it was calling me. I looked inside and found a small box, opened it and found a diary. The leather cover had a small oval in the center, and a black and white picture of a beautiful girl reading a book.

I opened it and in the first page I read:
“This diary belongs to Amanda and you should not read it without her consent. If you do, be aware of the possible consequences.”

I closed the diary, but didn’t put it back into the chest. I pressed it against my chest with my right hand, noticing that dawn was near.
I turned to Patrick who was looking at me with a sad face.

“Will I see you again, Melanie?” He asked grabbing my free hand.

“I don’t know, now that I know what I have to do, I don’t know if I will dream of Astebeth anymore”.

“That’s a shame; I really wanted to know more about you”.

He got closer to me; I closed my eyes and stopped breathing for a moment, noticing his intention to kiss me. I felt his warm breath on my cheek and opened my eyes to look at him, but the only thing I saw was the ceiling of my bedroom.

I sat fast on my bed. I couldn’t believe my luck, almost had my first kiss, it was inside a dream, but I knew it was real, and I woke up just before he could reach my lips.

I was very frustrated; I stood up from the bed and heard a noise as if something hard dropped to the floor.

I looked under the bed, and that’s when I saw it.
Somehow I brought the diary with me to this world. I opened it again to make sure it was the same diary, and saw something new on the first page, handwritten with a still fresh black ink.

“To Melanie, from Amanda”

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.
