The Works of Patricia Lynne

Being Human

Tommy forgot his human life when he became a vampire…but it didn’t forget him.

Like all vampires, Tommy must do one thing: survive. With no memory of his life before death, his only connection to humanity is his twin brother. When Tommy rescues a young girl, he learns not all monsters are undead. After returning her to her family, Tommy struggles to understand why he felt so protective of her when she has no connection to him.

As the years pass, and with his twin’s help, Tommy moves on with his ‘life’ but never forgets the young girl or the monster who hurt her. When she re-enters his life as a teenager, Tommy struggles with his vampire need to survive and his desire to protect her. He will be forced to decide which part of him is stronger: The vampire? Or the human? The answer may destroy him.

Snapshots

Cyclop can see other people’s futures, but his own is clouded by a past he can’t escape and a man he calls Master.

It’s not Cyclop’s albino skin and mismatched eyes that make him stand out, but his ability to see the future and a dark past he escaped. Only those close to him know his secrets, and with their help, he has carved out a normal life. But his past refuses to let him go, and when the man he calls Master finds him, he is forced to return to his old life.

Imprisoned, Cyclop clings to the hope of freedom. To do so, he must break Master’s control over him. Will he find the strength to become the master of his own life? Or is his past destined to be his future?

Armory was raised to hate nature, but not all trees wanted a war.

Armory was born in a world torn apart by the war between man and nature. The threat of another attack looms over Armory and the survivors hidden in the remains of New York City. When Armory is kidnapped, a tree nymph is her unlikely savior.

Birch claims he can return Armory safely home. Can she trust a tree? If she wants to see her home again, she has no choice. As they travel across the wasteland of America, Armory meets both humans and trees who want the fighting to stop.

But the hatred between man and nature may be too deep of a wound to heal. In a world destroyed by hate, can Armory and Birch’s friendship change minds and forge peace? Birch has a plan to make it happen. He’s just not sure he’ll survive.

About Patricia

Patricia never set out to become a writer, and in fact, she never considered it an option during high school and college. She was more of an art and band geek. Some stories are meant to be told, and now she can’t stop writing. Her young adult stories often have a paranormal, fantasy or sci-fi twist.

Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, and has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow. She also writes New Adult Urban Fantasy and Sci-Fi Romance under the name Patricia Josephine.

OPTIONAL IWSG DAY QUESTION:

Let’s play a game. Imagine. Role-play. How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream?

Or if you are already there, what does it look and feel like? Tell the rest of us. What would you change or improve?

I can only answer part one.

Although I think of myself as a good writer and poet—when the mood strikes, I can’t hang on to the feeling that my work is worth anything more than black and white scribbles on a computer screen.

Think pendulum, I swing between being worthy and the woman with a shaking hand over the all too powerful backspace button. When worthy, the mood hits hard and I write up a storm. Oh, and like what I’ve typed.

But like the ocean, I can count on the feeling ebbing away  leaving me a hot mess.

Future writer self?

To have the energy and self-esteem to write something worth reading every day. Without the constant pendulum. To feel like I’ve accomplished something creative every time I sit down. Because my creativity validates who I am.

I don’t need to be rich, or famous. In fact, I’d probably hate being both.

I guess what I’m saying is, my future self would believe in herself for more than a minute at a time.

I admire all of you so much for simply this reason. You do it. You live the writing life I want so bad.

My Dream

I can only guess what Stephen King thinks or feels.

He claims to be just a normal every day guy… that happens to write stories.

I guess I want to feel like that.

Spending my lifetime writing stories as a normal-every-day gal.

Thanks for dropping by. Do you feel yourself swing from able-author to less-than? What do you do to keep at it?

How I Survived Writer’s Block

Recently I was stuck. Not sure why. I could have been scared or had writer’s block. Who knows? The thing is I pulled out of it and I’m going to share how it happened.

A colleague asked for a proofreader. I volunteered. I do this often, so remember that if you need someone to read for you. Anyway, as I’m reading this lovely story about dragons, I felt inspired to revisit my project.

I landed up hopping between both projects. A bit for her and a bit for me. Turned out I’d get tired trying to revise my work for several hours at a time without a break.

a change is as good as a rest.
