Continuing my blog wander, today I have a very special event! By wild coincidence, my friend Lynn also published her first book this month, Feather by Feather and Other Stories. Today we’re doing an interview swap to share about both our books. Read on for Lynn’s thoughts about writing and publishing, and wander over to her blog for my answers to the same questions.
Lynn E. O’Connacht is a writer by twilight and, occasionally, sunlight and moonlight. At all times she is a cisgendered white woman. She holds an MA in English literature with a focus on creative writing and fantasy literature. She has geographically confused spelling despite her education’s best efforts to fix this and has been writing stories for as long as she has been able to write. She used to type her works on an old-fashioned typewriter using red ink, but alas both the equipment and the stories have since been lost to time.
Lynn blogs at Little Lion Lynnet’s and can be found on GoodReads, Twitter and LibraryThing.

There are some pieces of realistic fiction, but it’s predominantly fantasy. Which isn’t much of an answer, I know.

It has biscuit-baking demons, QUILTBAG protagonists, utterly alien stories with nary a human in sight, a bunch of fairytale retellings, poetry, a one-legged dog, witches, bobble hats, sentient steam engines, fairies… Actually a lot of fairies. I blame the fairytales. Apart from space ships and the kitchen sink, it might have everything. (Warning: it may not actually have everything.) Continue reading “Blog Wander: Little Lion Lynnet’s”
