I’m Jenna Lynn, and I’m aspiring to become a Christian freelance writer and published book author (though I’m trying my hand at short stories, too) of both fiction and non-fiction, though my primary interests lie in science fiction and fantasy. I’ve always loved writing, and over the past several years have been building up my library (no joke, my dad and I actually work for a library district, and has access to free books and movies-how cool is that?). As my writing hobby has developed, I’ve gradually been working on establishing lasting relationships with fellow writers, one of whom is Becca Hart (you can learn more about her by clicking the link with her name above). I have taken English and writing classes throughout high school and college and am currently pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in English at Regent University. When I’m not writing, you usually can find me with a sketchpad or book in my hand (sometimes both!) or shooting the breeze with my friends.
I do not have much of a portfolio yet, but I am currently working on building up one and will try to have several samples available on the website soon.
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT ME:
I am a non-denominational Christian and therefore a servant first and foremost to the God of the Bible. That being said, I feel it is my personal responsibility to uphold the laws laid out in His Word, especially the most important commandment: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (Matthew 22:37).”
As a follower of Christ, I am a firm believer that every person is a unique creation made in the image of God. As a result, I serve to respect human dignity and individuality, as they are recognized by Jesus Himself, to the best of my ability.

ABOUT MY LATEST WORK
I’m currently working on a young adult supernatural fantasy series called the Semahnim (you pronounce the “e” like you would in the word “set”-maw (like “paw”) nim) Chronicles. The series name comes from the fictional race of people who are a predominant part of the books.
The imaginary name of the Semahnim race is derived from the Hebrew word for mark (noun), which is pronounced “see-mahn.” Though they are human, they possess a number of abilities because of a Mark they bear on their foreheads (which are invisible to Normals, or normal people).
Below is the teaser I wrote for the first book, though most of the plot encompasses the entire series:
Maddy has been fighting against evil in every normal and paranormal form for nearly 2,000 years. Over the centuries, she has endured war, death, natural disasters, trust and betrayal, and even recently has loved and lost. But what started out as just another fight with a demon was really the beginning of something beyond what she ever could have imagined. The evil forces of the world have been preparing themselves for this for millennia and their strength and numbers are growing. Will they succeed? That will depend on whether Maddy, coupled with the impulsive and cocky teenager Zed, can overcome the fears and doubts that have haunted her since she was seventeen and save her people-from themselves. If they fail, the very foundation that has held so strong for thousands of years will finally crumble, and the whole world will pay for it.
