Val Linn is currently rewriting and polishing the production of his last ten years, and has published the first novel of his Carlyntown trilogy, The Rainbow At Midnight.

He went to college directly out of High School, and studied Religion, intending to become a Christian minister, then served in the Army for three years. He learned infantry squad battle tactics and then Intelligence functions, Special-Agenting in the C.I.C. (Counter Intelligence Corps. division of Army Intelligence). During those Army year, his first family broke up and the obstacles of pain and fear remained and had to be overcome before he could engage in life’s other battles. The family split gave him a natural sympathy for those left alone or abandoned in life. After the Military service, he used his experience to become a professional counselor, working for over twenty years to lesson the pain and struggle that people around him were fighting. His stories take seriously the obstacles his characters face, and show how those characters meet and overcome them to build satisfying and productive lives for themselves.

Val lives with his wife and a diverse array of other life forms on a small farm in the hills of Scappoose, Oregon.
