AUTHOR/ EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
Lynn Tincher was born just outside of Louisville, Kentucky in the beautiful city of La Grange. One of her fondest memories of growing up was when a short story she wrote for an English class was read in front of the students at Oldham County High School. Since then, her love for writing blossomed. She studied Theater Arts at Eastern Kentucky University in hopes of becoming a Drama/English teacher. Lynn had several articles published in local magazines and online, but the thought of writing a novel always stuck with her.
Inspired by Nora Roberts, JK Rowling, and Greg Isles, Lynn wrote Afterthoughts, the first book in the Mind Bending Series. It is a fictional psychological crime series that follows the life of a young Louisville Police Detective named Paige Aldridge. Blackwyrm Fiction picked up Afterthoughts for publication in 2008.
When she signed the contract, it landed Lynn the center page for a story in Leo Weekly. Since then, Lynn has released three additional books in the Mind Bending Series: Left in the Dark, Buried Deep, and Where There is Light.
