About Lynette

Lynette M. Burrows was born cursed. Cursed to love reading, she was always lost in a book. And she lived every story she read, at least in her imagination. Imagination was pooh-poohed as impractical so Lynette found a practical job.

She worked hard at being a regular person holding down practical jobs. But her soul yearned for creative expression that stretched farther than her personal journal. She took a how-to-write correspondence class (in the days when home computers lurked in a garage somewhere in California). That began the slow scrawl that led from 500-word children’s stories to 500-page novels.

She is the co-author (with Rob Chilson) of two novellas, “The White Hope” and “The White Box,” published in Analog Science Fiction and Fact magazine. She has had short stories for children published in regional and national magazines. Her debut novel, My Soul to Keep, is due out in 2018.

Lynette enjoys real cream in her coffee, the pleasure of real books, and the crack of a nine millimeter, not necessarily all at the same time . . . but they all appear in her stories!  

She writes about hopes, dreams, and evil schemes. Her stories are spiced with a dash of intrigue, a dollop of mayhem, and a liberal dose of automatic weapons. 

Lynette pens her thrilling adventures of yesterday and tomorrow at Burrows Hollow, the space station earth-bound home to Lynette, her artist husband, and their two Yorkshire Terriers.
