Paranormal Romance, Historical Fiction
Lynn Maples dreamed of being a cartoonist like his hero Walt Disney. He was fascinated with how simple lines on a page could tell a story. Little did he know that his love of animation and storytelling would take a career change with one simple 200 word short story writing assignment in 8th grade as part of a weekend homework assignment.
He was hooked. He wrote his first novel the next year -- a children's adventure story -- and put aside his second novel "Deceiving Darkness" until life could allow him to spend time writing for pleasure instead of for work. He has spent the past three decades working as an award-winning journalist and marketing professional. Writing is his escape from the daily grind of web copy, marketing campaigns and the 9-to-5 hustle.
Since joining Malice, he has been published in the organizations Memphis Mysteries Anthologies series, joined The Syndicate of Writers for the Mystery, Crime and Mayhem quarterly anthology/magazine, and his first book in his Loretta Jean cozy mystery series is scheduled for release in late Spring 2021.
