I was educated at the United States Air Force Academy, Arkansas State University, and The University of Tennessee. Somewhere along the way I was encouraged to write my bios in first person, so that is what you get. I've been writing since 1975, when my first science text book supplement was published by ESP, Inc. My first novel, A Question of Character, was co-written with my oldest son, John Abernathy, and I soon followed as solo author with a sequel, Nikita's War. Both books are political thrillers. My latest novel, titled Noah, is my first venture into a new genre, religious fiction, but is in reality an adventure story built around the legendary Noah's Ark. Along with the fiction, I am a columnist with The ... read more

Having blocks of time to write is pure luxury. Before, when raising a family and working as a teacher or computer programmer, tantalizing tales of dark deeds and people facing them swirled in my head. Lucky for me, I can write them now.

Five years ago, Lynn Kelling spontaneously started writing and hasn’t stopped since. It all started with the desire to take a closer look at behaviors and ideas lurking at the fringes of life – basically anything that people may hesitate to speak of in mixed company, but everyone wonders about anyway. She is drawn to that which some may consider to be taboo – the darker and wilder the better – in order to expose the humanity within it. Our most telling moments are conveyed through intimacy and that which makes us feel vulnerable, powerful, or both, and so what could be more intriguing?
