the author

Ann M. Lynn is an American story writer of science fiction and fantasy set in expansive worlds.


I love writing. It’s my favorite way to share ideas and emotions.

For me, fiction is easiest form of communicating experiences and reactions. Speculative fiction (fantasy and science fiction) offer the widest range to explore.

While staring into my writing folders, I also write blog posts. Those are shown to the public about as often, which means I have a backlog of posts to share with y’all.

Shadows in Mind is “a blog about living and writing” where I have covered everything from my thoughts on writing to experiments with arts such as acting, photography, drawing, singing, and dancing; science news that caught my attention; and (more in the future) articles that relate to story research.

Thank you for reading!
