Greetings, everyone! I am Lyn Gilleland.
Austin, Texas has been my home most of my life, as I was raised on a small farm not far from the Austin city limits. Though I’ve been telling stories since I could talk, I actually began writing stories at the age of 12.
I have a wide variety of hobbies aside from writing, ranging from art to horseback riding to archery to video games, with lots of other hobbies in between. I play the piano, the Irish penny whistle known as the feadog, and an Irish rosewood flute for fun and am currently teaching myself to play the guitar.
I graduated college with a BA in English with a Writing Emphasis and a minor in History, and am currently working on a master’s in Library Science.
My specialties primarily lie in fantasy, Christian allegory, and poetry, though I have dabbled in historic fiction as well and am currently branching out into some other classifications of writing, such as sci-fi.
Though I have published a few small articles in church publications, most of my work is self-published. My first book, a children’s story called Random, was written when I was about 15. I went on to self-publish The Star Trilogy when I was in high school, and a sequel to the trilogy titled Ancient Vengeance while I was in college.
After college, I began to realize just how poor-quality my older books were, and as such, I removed all old copies from market. Currently, I have two books for sale: my retro fantasy novel, Prism World, and updated edition of The Four Stars.
