Lynette Aspey


Lynette Aspey writes science fiction and fantasy for anybody who likes reading, or being read to. She originates from Sydney, Australia and grew up amidst beaches, bushland, horses, sunshine and books. Lots, and lots of books.

At 21, Lyn went travelling and lived in the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Canada, the Caribbean and various inter-dimensional spaces between. For over fifteen years, Lyn, with her husband and daughter, lived onboard a cruising yacht. Those were the years when they had no idea where they'd be next, or what they'd be doing from day to day.

Lyn is now back in Australia and she's once again surrounded by bushland and animals of various kinds. Some of them four-legged.
