SPOTLIGHT ON: Mandi M. Lynch


How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?

It’s Zimmer’s fault.  There aren’t a lot of other people that I’d do just about anything for, but as soon as he announced that he was starting a new convention I told him I’d be on board.


What is your latest release and what genre is it?

I write a lot of short stories, so it’s sometimes hard to keep track of them all!  (I know that sounds bad, but it is true!)  I tend to write speculative fiction of some sort – fantasy or science fiction, or the occasional horror or mystery pieces.  I’m actually in the editing/planning stages of several projects right now, too.


Quick description of it.

Somebody does something and somebody else has to fix it.  Or Somebody is unhappy with their place in life and does something about it.  Those seem to be the two themes I write about most. 


Something unique about it.

My points of view as a writer.  I like to play with form and take it to a place where you don’t usually go as a reader – 2nd person point of view, a unique character perspective we don’t often get to see, something.  (But that 2nd person thing is seriously a favorite of mine.)


Links for people to buy it.

Um…  Most of my stuff is available through my amazon author page: http://www.amazon.com/Mandi-M-Lynch/e/B007P0P4Z4/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_3?qid=1406693288&sr=8-3-fkmr1

Your short Bio.

Mandi started writing at the tender age of five, pecking away at her mother’s typewriter to tell silly stories.  Although the crayon drawings have marginally improved, the spelling has not.  She is a writer, editor, and photographer, and the owner/editor of Ink Monkey Mag, a lit magazine dedicated to advancing writers everywhere.  She now lives in the suburbs of Nashville, TN, with three cats, none of which write due to lack of thumbs.
