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 (or play with, rather) 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.
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 my Christian Allegory/Fantasy novel, The Four Stars.
