Lyn Horner resides in Fort Worth, Texas – “Where the West Begins” – with her husband and several very spoiled cats. Trained in the visual arts, Lyn worked as a fashion illustrator and art instructor before she took up writing. She loves crafting passionate love stories, both historical and contemporary. Lyn also enjoys reading, genealogy, gardening, visiting with family and friends, and cuddling her furry, four-footed children.

The author’s Texas Devlins series blends authentic Old West settings, steamy romance and paranormal elements. This series has earned multiple awards and nominations, including Crowned Heart reviews and a Rone Award nomination from InD’Tale Magazine.

Lyn is a contributor to Rawhide ʼn Roses, a Western Romance Anthology.

Lyn Horner Hey friends,
There's a contest going on at Writers In the Storm that you might want to check out. It's called "Going to the Chapel". Here are the particulars. Please pass this along to your friends. And if you know a good place to post about it, feel free.

Simply choose one of the ‘processional’ lines below, and finish the story. The Grand Prize is a crititque of your work in progress by at least three WITS bloggers!

1. Shaking in my glittery platform sandals, I tottered down the aisle of the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, smiling at the hunk who waited at the altar. What was his name?

2. Jesse shoved her wedding veil from her ear and answered the ringing phone. ”Don’t marry him!” her finance’s brother yelled.

3. A disinterested Minerva watched as the alien wedding droned on and on and on. Her interest refocused when the bride unsheathed her talons and swiped across the groom’s throat.

4. After a morning fighting hand-to-hand against the Zombie Militia, Maxine’s head was just not in the wedding game.

 For both published and unpublished writers.

 Using one of the four processional lines, write the opening scene to a wedding.

 Maximum 250 words, including the chosen opener. Use computer word count. Entries including more than 250 words total will be disqualified.

 Any genre permitted except Erotica

 Post your entries to In the subject line, type, “Contest Entry” and your last name.

 Paste your entry into the body of the email. No attachments, please!

 Include your contact info: Full name, email, phone number. The phone number is optional – only used in case of a technical glitch to contact the winner.

 Submit as many entries as you’d like.

 Winner will recieve a one chapter critique by at least three WITS bloggers, not to exceed twenty pages.

 Winning prize must be redeemed by November 30, 2011.
