Donya Lynne is the author of the award winning All the King's Men Series and a member of Romance Writers of America. Making her home in a wooded suburb north of Indianapolis with her husband, Donya has lived in Indiana most of her life and knew at a young age that she was destined to be a writer. She started writing poetry in grade school and won her first short story contest in fourth grade. In junior high, she began writing romantic stories for her friends, and by her sophomore year, they had dubbed her Most Likely to Become a Romance Novelist. In 2012, she made that dream come true by publishing her first two novels and two novellas. Her work has earned her two IPPYs, one gold and one silver, as well as two eLit Awards, also one gold and ...more

I was watching the Olympics last year and was totally fascinated with the snowboarding events. Shaun White ended up pulling out of slopestyle, and he was taking a bit of a beating from fellow competitors and the press. I wondered what it was like being him and if the pressure and back-stabbing ever got to him? Suddenly, I had a character spring to life in my mind who wanted to explore this possibility. She became Lacey Moon, an Olympic champion who has grown up in the sport and lost her identity. The story follows her and her love interest, Scott McCord, as she searches for "herself."

I LOVED writing this story. It blew out of me in two weeks, start to finish, and I let it sit all year with the intention of publishing this winter. I ended up rewriting half of it during edits, increasing the conflict, chemistry, and emotional tension, and I couldn't be happier with the end result. (less)

In answer to your question, I currently don't have a plan for the next Hope Falls book. I want to write it, but Finding Lacey Moon, as much as I LOVED writing that story, didn't generate a lot of excitement among my readers. They all wanted me to write more of my AKM books and finish the Strong Karma Trilogy (which I did, yay!), so I've been spending time working on those stories right now. I do plan on writing more Hope Falls novels, and when I do, we'll see more of Scott and Lacey. :) I hope that helps.(less)

So...you're not a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey. That's cool. I get it. In a way, I'm right there with you. Here's the thing, though. If you don't like Fifty, you don't need to be rude about it.

I rarely post about Fifty Shades of Grey. I wasn't a ginormous fan of the books. I didn't hate them, but I didn't love them, either. If I had been the developmental editor on these books, I would have poi... Read more of this blog post »

“Whereas males of both species played the field in similar ways, a human marriage had nothing on a vampire mating. A marriage could be dissolved by a judge with a little slip of paper. A marriage could be ended in a blink if the humans got tired of each other or fell out of love. With vampires, there was no dissolving a mating. A mated pair didn't grow tired of one another, and they certainly didn't fall out of love. When two vampires mated, a link formed to tether them to one another on a level that transcended the physical plane and fused them into one on a spiritual and emotional level, which was why the loss of a mate left a male in a state of despair if it didn't kill him outright. A mating was for life and plainly demonstrated the vampire race's link to the animal kingdom.”

“Miriam woke up to find Io sitting on the floor next to her. His gaze brightened and he smiled. "How do you feel?" he said. He helped her sit up. "Like shit." She groaned. "Don't get me wrong, I feel better than I did, but damn, this shit sucks." Who the hell had let in the army of Terminators to play Rock 'Em Sock 'Em inside her body? Io chuckled at her surprisingly unfeminine manner of speaking and sat down beside her. "I gave you a potent detox with my venom. I needed to get the cobalt out of your system." "Ah, I see." She leaned her face into her hands. "Great. Just great. I don't know whether to thank you or hit you." How did she always seem to put her worst face forward around this guy? The one male she wanted to impress and all she did was behave like a strung-out junkie around him. The vampire version of Amy Winehouse. How could he not be impressed? Uh-huh, right.”
Donya Lynne, Rebel Obsession
