Trained in the visual arts, Lyn worked as a fashion illustrator and later as an art instructor for Art Instruction Schools (famous for their “Draw Me” heads.) After quitting work to raise her children, she took up writing to save her sanity. This hobby grew into an enduring love for historical research and the art of crafting passionate love stories based on that research.
“Writing a book is like putting together a huge jigsaw puzzle,” Lyn says. “It requires endless patience and determination to see your ideas come to life. Once hooked, you’re forever addicted.”
A member of Romance Writers of America, Lyn is a former vice president of North Texas Romance Writers and a semi-finalist in the prestigious Orange Rose Contest in 2008 (under another name.)
In late 2010, she launched her first Kindle book, DARLIN’ DRUID, volume one in her TEXAS DRUIDS trilogy. This epic western romance features a heroine with the gift of second sight, inherited from her Irish Druid ancestors.
Quoting Todd Fonseca of Tag My Book On Amazon:
“I’ll admit I was completely thrown by the title of this book. If for some reason you are as well, “fuhgeddaboudit”! This is an engaging, page turning, can’t put it down, don’t know where the time went, read. In fact, when I received Horner’s book I had already started Steig Larsson’s “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”; having finished the first two books in Larsson’s series I was anxious to complete the third. But I picked up Horner’s book and frankly the pace was so much faster and the book more engaging that I put best selling Hornet aside in favor of finishing Horner’s book.”
“The characters, love triangle and compelling plot line compete with the best in this genre. This is a full force romance novel with some unique twists that readers are sure to enjoy. I encourage readers to give it a try. You won’t be disappointed!”
Lyn is currently at work on volume two in this series. Look for it in late 2011.
Lyn also recently published her memoir, SIX CATS IN MY KITCHEN. This Kindle book touches upon grieving the loss of loved ones, traveling cross-country with kids and pets, and living with a disabling genetic disorder. Although liberally sprinkled with humor, Lyn advises readers to keep a tissue handy for the not-so-funny parts. Many photos illustrate the story.
