Lynn Viehl has a new venture – a series of steampunk novels set in an America that didn’t win the War of Independence, and so is still a British feifdom. Into this world steps a fascinating new character, a young woman who is setting herself up as an investigator of paranormal activity. Not that she [...]
I always write my novels for my readers, but there are books that I write for myself as well. A great deal of what I wrote in the StarDoc series was loosely based on my experiences working in the medical field. In the Darkyn novels I used some of my favorite characters from history as [...]

We had a really fun day with Lynn Viehl last month, and we’d like to thank her for her guest blog about Winter Reading.
Lynn Viehl writes nuanced, intelligent characters. When she writes about the Kyn, her version of long-lived creatures who exist on blood, they are believable. You can believe that they have lived for hundreds of years, because they are far more timeless than many others. They take the long view, even when their appearance is that [...]

Lynn Viehl’s Nightborn is a resumption of her Lords of the Darkyn series, but if you’re new to the series, you can start with this one, if you want to. She keeps spoilers about the other books to an absolute minimum. There is no puppetry here, no events taking over the characters who do as [...]
When I had a chance to pitch to my publisher some new books set in the Darkyn universe, I didn’t just jump at the opportunity; I flung myself at it, knocked it down and sat on it until I had a contract. I was pretty sure this would make my readers, who have been asking [...]

For those of you who prefer your paranormal romance set in a realistically built world, with characters that burst off the page, look no further. Add to that truly [...]
Lynne Connolly‘s review of Shadowlight by Lynn Viehl Paranormal Romance released by Onyx 6 Oct 09 I’m a fan of Ms Viehl’s paranormal books. Her previous series ended with “Stay the Night” and was a lead in to this new series. Jessa is an intelligent heroine, something I love about Ms Viehl’s books. And the [...]
