About the Author

Tommie Lyn grew up in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia immersed in firelight whispers. She listened spellbound as older generations spun chilling tales of local events, including stories of the supernatural. And sometimes, they even used the word "murder."

She carries on the tradition of her kinfolk, the storytelling magic guaranteed to rob hours of sleep and make the night come alive. Only the brave dare step into her world to listen. And sometimes, the voices still whisper...

More About the Author

I grew up in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia, spending summer evenings on the front porch listening spellbound as grownups told tales of local events, including stories of the supernatural.

Storytelling has been a big part of my life ever since. As a small child, I often entertained myself by imagining exciting stories, even before I could write. Now, when I enter a story world and watch the characters act out an interesting or exciting tale, I write down what they do and share it.

Scribbles is an interesting mixture. There are elements of The Da Vinci Code. Illuminati, anyone? A child with psychic abilities used for experimentation relates to aspects in Dark Visions by L.J. Smith, author of The Vampire Diaries.

The main character, Meg MacAllister is also many things. She is the daughter of two convicted murderers. She is a cop. She is a psychic. These disparate qualities elicit different responses from those around her. Devotion from her father. Disdain from her mother. Understanding from her grandmother. Frustration from her fellow cops.

Johnny Peyton is Meg's partner on the police force. His relationship with the newly divorced Amanda Adcock is already on shaky ground when Johnny and Meg are dispatched to a domestic disturbance involving Amanda and her ex-husband. The ensuing violence lands Meg in the hospital.

Johnny's guilt forces him to admit that he has feelings for Meg. His adolescent infatuation with Amanda was based on superficial attributes. He realizes that he has unwittingly fallen in love with Meg.

However, Johnny learns that a relationship with Meg will not be easy. Since childhood, she has been tormented by a recurring nightmare. It starts in a white room. Black scribbles fill the space. A face emerges from the black lines. Upon awakening, Meg learns that the person featured in her dream has met with violence.

Her parents, Jim Ed and Natalie, may be imprisoned for murder, but Meg believes she is the one responsible for their crime. Natalie had created a laboratory in their basement in order to forge a deeper connection with her lover, Professor Worthen. She dupes Jim Ed into fashioning a device to aid their psychological research.

Tommie Lyn's new book 'Scribbles' is everything I have come to expect from this talented writer. A spooky thriller that I could'nt put down, it kept me wondering right to the end.
Her writing is wonderfully discriptive, creating atmosphere and tension.

She portrays a wide range of characters in such a way, that the reader is drawn into their lives, hating some and loving others.
Like Granny Mac for instance, what a wonderful character, I would have loved a granny like her.
And then the heroin Meg,I felt great sympathy for her, as I followed her through the pages of the book.

Tommie Lyn's books, give one a snapshot of a part of American life, and it is quite fascinating.

'Scribbles' is a brilliant book, and I am already recommending it to all my friends.

Scribbles

I was paralyzed with fear when I went to read this one as it was my third book by this author. I expected more romance more so after the last book I read and here we go again, so I thought. I started out and before I could believe what my eyes were telling my brain I was done and I WAS entertained. This book has a bit of everything all thrown into one and then gives you more. Now I can not wait for the next book by this author.

Tommie Lyn tells a great, fast-paced story that will never leave you once you read it! You'll never see pencil scribbles the same way again...

Others have written an overview of this book so I will say that I did enjoy it very much. I do wish that several parts had been more fleshed out. I wanted more information about the device and some of the court details about how the parents were convicted. Also Meg read the details about the convictions but we find this out after the fact. This was why she became a cop and was another missed opportunity to give us what she found. How did her mother get out of prison so abruptly? The ending wrapped up a little too neatly and quickly but I am interested enough to read the next one.

There are some books I prefer over others; that's just human nature regarding preference and prerogatives. However, some books tilt my personal Richter scale exponentiall; Scribbles is one such book. Give me my "Multiple MC's" (as I refer to them) and I am one extremely happy camper. Mystery, Murder, Mayhem and Mind Control, coupled with Conspiracies, Cool Characters and lots and lots of Conflict is always considered icing on the cake. Ms. Tommy Lyn even goes a step further and weaves a romantic interest-turned-love affair for our deeply scarred protagonist and flawed heroin as she steals the heart of her readers. I just enjoyed this book so much I really hated for it to end.

I did have my peeves about the book, and believe me, I'm outspoken enough to comment on them (even though I can't wait for the author's next book about Meg McAllister's supernatural gifts!). First off, the story ended rather abruptly (not cliff-hanger abrupt) and I'm not sure why. There were also some parts of the book that were totally unbelievable; however, that's the nature of science fiction, right? Another issue was the inherent neediness associated with the protagonist that rubbed me the wrong way (but those are obviously all MY issues more than the author's).

So why the 5-Star rating after these gnawing peeves were obviously triggered? Simply put, the book's positive attributes FAR OUTWEIGH the negative ones. Also, conspiracies and psychic powers can be challenging topics for some of the best writers out there. That being said, I would really like to commend the author for stepping out of her comfort zone to pursue these difficult topics. Anyway, Thu this is a must-read for conspiracy/sci-fi junkies and anyone else who loves lots of action, adventure and suspense in their reading material. Good job Tommie Lyn!
