Hywela Lyn was born and lived most of her life in Wales, and the beautiful countryside and legends did much to inspire her writing. Although she now lives in a small village in England, she is very proud of her Welsh heritage and background.
Her pen name is a combination of her first two names – ‘Hywela’ is Welsh and her first name but she has always been called by her second Christian name, Lyn, so she though it was time ‘Hywela’ was used as well.
She enjoys weaving romantic tales of the future, and distant, mysterious worlds, and one thing remains constant in her writing: The power of love. Love, not only between her hero and heroine, but between friends and siblings, and for their particular world and the creatures that share it. This reflects her love of all animals, especially horses. She lives with her long suffering husband, Dave, and has two horses, a feral cat and an adopted lovable but slightly manic terrier called Choccy. (whose name also reflects her love of chocolate!)
Hywela Lyn’s debut novel, ‘Starquest’, a futuristic romance was published by The Wild Rose Press who also published her second book in the Destiny Trilogy, ‘Children of the Mist’. ‘Beloved Enemy’ which continues the Destiny series was released on March 11th 2016 by the same publisher.
