J. Lynn Else

About me

J. Lynn Else was born in Moose Lake, MN, and moved to Rochester in 4th grade. Around that time, she began writing stories and developed an interest in history when gifted the book “The Discovery of the Titanic: Exploring the Greatest of All Lost Ships” (which she still owns). Her creative writing also developed in part through having multiple pen pals in her school days. Else’s love of history eventually moved to ancient times, especially to the people of ancient Egypt.

Outside of reading voraciously and driving kids to multiple after-school activities, J. Lynn enjoys a perfectly steeped cup of hot tea while writing her next historically-based novel. She is also a reviewer for the Historical Novel Society. Her first book, THE FORGOTTEN: ATEN’S LAST QUEEN (ISBN13: 9781500713775), was named an Indie Editor’s Choice book by the Historical Novel Society in 2016. Her second book, THE FORGOTTEN: HEIR OF THE HERETIC (ISBN13: 9780692802229), was just released December of 2016.
