More About the Author

Hywela Lyn spent most of her life in Wales and the beautiful countryside and legends inspired her to write. Although she now lives in a small village in England, she is very proud of her Welsh heritage and background.

She enjoys weaving romantic tales of the future, and distant, mysterious worlds, stories to truly take you 'out of this world'and beyond. Wherever the muse takes her, one thing remains constant in her writing: The power of love. Love, not only between her hero and heroine, but between friends and siblings, and for their particular world and the creatures that share it.

She is crazy about all animals, especially horses. She lives with her long suffering husband, Dave, and has two horses, a 'feral' stable cat and an adopted Jack Russell terrier called Bouncer. Her pen name is a combination of her first two names. 'Hywela' is Welsh and her first name but it was never used and she has always been called by her second Christian name, Lyn.

Hywela Lyn's first novel, 'Starquest', a futuristic romance, and a sequel, to 'Starquest', 'Children of the Mist' are both available in print or Kindle version. Her fantasy novella 'Dancing With Fate' is also available now as an E-book from Smashwords, Kindle, and in print.

Starquest is a space adventure novel with a sweet romance at its core.
Aubrie A. Dionne
Yet, when they land on a planet and confront an enemy, after being hit by blaster fire, and Jess dies in his arms, well, you know the depth of his love.

You know when you read a book you look for a chapter ending so you can insert a bookmark and then come back later to read again.

Starquest, by Hywela Lyn, is a story that starts with a bang; a very big bang. Then a lonely woman pilot is rescued by strangers on a beautiful space-ship. Of course, it's not just the ship that's beautiful, and soon pilot and lover are involved in an effort to free a peaceful planet from violent enslavement.

The tragic consequences of that effort eventually lead to Jess's quest to return to her beloved. The story is told in the form of journal entries, giving a pleasant feeling of intimacy and immediacy. The reader meets the mysterious Dahll and journeys to Niflheim, a planet beautifully described and replete with images from Norse mythology; then on again to more strange and wonderful places peopled with fascinating characters. I found myself remembering Gulliver's Travels and wondering where the quest would end.

There's a mystery here as well as a quest, and both come together in a surprising and satisfying conclusion. The author's nicely imagined future, with realistic fears and concerns, is a fitting backdrop to a very well-told tale. Thanks Hywela.

Starquest by Hywela Lyn has all the elements of a science fiction story I look for. There's descriptive language, romance, strong characters and the list goes on. You know when you read a book you look for a chapter ending so you can insert a bookmark and then come back later to read again. Not so with Starquest. I found my self breezing through the end of a chapter and continuing on to the next chapter without delay. The alien landscapes were well thought out, the characters whether good or villian, were portrayed well so that you knew their goals. I enjoy action and the fight scenes and danger in space were vivid. The alien life forms were really scary, but hey, that's what we expect and adds spice to any story like this. Their were a number of twists that kept me reading and they all were resolved the way I wanted. Jess found her true love, always a nice thing to happen. The cover was beautiful. I highly recommend this novel.

Well-written, this is one futuristic romance novel I paid attention to. With twists and turns, I enjoyed Hywela Lyn's no-nonsense approach at story telling. This novel made me pay attention. I know, might sound silly, but her story inspired me to purchase a telescope. That's how interesting it was. Now I look to the stars with not only a bit more romanticism under my belt, but a genuine interest in what's `out there.'

Hywela Lyn brought things to life. She made me think. Starquest is exceptional.
I suggest everyone read it. Well worth your time!
