J. Lynn Else

J.Around 4th grade, J. Lynn began writing stories. She also developed an interest in history around that time when she was gifted the book The Discovery of the Titanic: Exploring the Greatest of All Lost Ships (which she still owns). Her creative writing also developed in part through having multiple pen pals in her school days (in the “time before email” times!).

J. Lynn enjoys reading and writing about awesome women from antiquity. Her first novel released in 2013, The Forgotten: Aten's Last Queen (The Forgotten #1), was named an Indie Editor's Choice book by the Historical Novel Society and was long listed for the Historical Novel Society 2017 Indie Award. Her second novel, The Forgotten: Heir of the Heretic (The Forgotten #2), was released December 2016 and again follows the family of Akhenaten & Nefertiti through the eyes of their daughters.

Outside of reading voraciously and driving kids to multiple after-school activities, J. Lynn enjoys a perfectly steeped cup of hot tea while writing and editing her next projects, one is a YA adventure involving the women of King Arthur's time and the other is a historical fiction about an empress who lived in ancient China. Her next novel about ancient Egypt is in the early planning stages.
