Appearances by Lynette M. Burrows

I enjoy meeting new people and speaking about writing, research, and many other topics. My appearances have been rare during a time of family need, but I am anticipating getting out and visiting with more of you in the near future. See “Ask Lynette to be a Guest” below.


I love attending many science fiction and writing conventions. Meeting fans, readers, and authors is always a joy.

ConQuest – Kansas City

ConQuest is a science fiction and fantasy convention held in Kansas City, Missouri on Memorial Day weekend each year. You can find me hanging out in the lounge area or catch me on a panel.

Mysterious Goings On (MGO) is a podcast hosted by Kansas City area resident, J. Alexander Greenwood. We follow each other on Twitter. I am honored to have been a guest on his show twice. We talked most recently on May 12, 2022.

Image is from one of my appearances and is a collage with the branded MGO podcast image in the upper left and my portrait photo below it with New Episode emblazoned in the middle left and at the bottom it reads "with guest Lynette M. Burrows author of If I Should Die."

Listen to the May 12, 2022 episode where I discuss finishing my novel, If I Should Die, during a time of personal loss and using real-life settings in fiction.

Don’t forget to listen to my first appearance on MGO in 2020 where I discuss learning to shoot like a sniper for a novel I’m working on.

Interviews and Appearances on Other Blogs

Read my interview on Bold Journey. Done in March 2024, I talk about how to gain confidence and self-esteem and what traits help make one successful as a writer.

CanvasRebel interviewed me about what it takes to be a successful writer on January 11, 2023.

Claire Buss hosted me for an interview in March of 2019 on her website, But I Don’t Like Salad. I like her domain name, don’t you? Having been a published author for a mere seven months, was my first guest appearance. Thank you, Claire!

Jan S. Gephardt has been a friend of mine for many years. You could say we were baby writers together. She had an idea that we could write a twinned interview. We posted it on the same day in September 2021 on each of our sites. See it on Jan’s website.

It was not only fun to do, readers thought it was a fun and interesting post.

Jan S. Gephardt commutes daily between her Kansas City-area home and two other universes: the sunny balcony in the Wizards’ Village where she makes her paper sculpture, and a habitat space station the size of New York City, far from Earth and several hundred years in the future, where she writes science fiction novels about a sapient police dog.

Appearances on YouTube

I have the first six chapters of the first draft of If I Should Die recorded. I hope to do a variety of recordings to share with you. Here’s the first one:
