Chatting with me on this beautiful September day is Hywela Lyn. Grab a chair and join us on the deck for a cup of hot chocolate with lots of cream and marshmallows.
Today, we're getting an inside peek at Hywela Lyn and her series, The Destiny Trilogy!
Hywela, what is your favourite drink?
I don’t drink a lot but I’m quite partial to a sweet white wine, and what I really, really like is Mead. An ancient wine blended with honey and herbs, originally made by monks. It’s quite sweet and very potent and I first tasted it at a wedding in a castle in Wales.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a UK writer published with the Wild Rose Press, in the U.S. and am a member of the Romance Novelists' Association (U.K.). I indulge my fantasies by crafting romantic tales of Science Fiction and Fantasy, set on far away planets and alternate worlds. I love the outdoors, and the wild and rugged countryside of Wales, where I was born and spent most of my life, with its beautiful landscapes and rich folklore and legends, inspired much of my writing. I am passionate about all animals, especially horses and dogs and spend as much time as I can when I’m not writing with my two horses and ‘rescue’ terrier. I hope readers enjoy reading the stories of my brave heroines and heroes as much as I enjoy writing them.
What one thing would readers be surprised to know about you?
I used to do long distance riding in Wales and completed the arduous ‘Red Dragon’ ride, getting lost in a bog in the process, after sheep ate the markers. (My trusty little mare, Sal, got us through, even though we both ended up covered in mud.)
What’s your guilty procrastination secret?
Google! It’s such a useful tool for research but it’s so easy to get distracted and follow a link to something unrelated to what I was searching for but which seems so interesting!
What does your writing space look like?
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing?
Ooh. Reading of course. Anything from Science Fiction and Fantasy to historical westerns. As I said earlier, I love spending time outdoors with my horses and dog, and also like tending to my small garden. I don’t watch much TV but I do enjoy a good film and wildlife programs.
What can we look forward to with your upcoming or next writing project?
I’m currently working on a ghost story romance. It’s really two love stories running consecutively, one set in the past and one in the present, in my native Wales. It’s mainly set on a horse farm and is quite a change from my usual Science Fiction romances.
Thank you so much for having me, I really enjoyed our interview.

Before we wrap up our chat, let's get a peek at Beloved Enemy which is part of The Destiny Trilogy.
Kerry Marchant, haunted by memories, regret, and self-blame, shields himself from the pain of the past by committing himself totally to the starship, Destiny, of which he is part owner. However, the beautiful, red-haired woman who reminds him of his lost love, and who he suspects is working for a corrupt regime, represents a possible threat not only to the ship, but to his heart.
Marooned on an inhospitable planet, they need to work together to stay alive, fighting not only unknown assailants, but their growing attraction. But how can they learn to trust each other when he has vowed never to get close to a woman again, and she made a solemn pledge to destroy him?
