Hi! My name is Linell Jeppsen. I’m the author of thirteen, award-winning novels and short stories which range from science fiction, horror and fantasy to westerns and historical romance.
I have written my whole life but was first published six years ago with the vampire novel, Detour To Dusk. It was written thirty years ago after binging on Anne Rice’s, Interview with a Vampire series while camping in the forest.
Living high up in the mountains in the state of Washington is enough to fire any writer’s imagination, especially if her thoughts tend to go “darkside” on occasion… Story Time (with over 130- 4 and 5 star reviews) is an “end of the world” epic thriller featuring Grand Coulee Dam, the Hanford Nuclear Reservation and the world’s deepest and deadliest caldera. (Yellowstone National Park).
And let’s not forget the popular science fiction series, The Guardians, I co-wrote with the Welsh writer J. Bryden Lloyd.
I have written fairy tales, like The War of Odds and supernatural romances like ONIO– about a half-human Sasquatch who falls in love with a human girl. If you like historical fiction; I wrote the highly-acclaimed, best-selling DEADMAN series with over 500- 4 and 5 star reviews and Far West, The Diary of Eleanor Higgins– a historical romance and WINNER of the 2016 PEACEMAKER AWARD!
I have won many awards including, The Peacemaker Award, the Global E-Book Awards, the Laramie Award, the Rone Award, the Reader’s Favorites Awards, the PRG’s “Best-Of” Awards and more.
When I’m not working on my own novels, I work as a Freelance Junior editor for two major publishing houses. I love doing this work and helping my fellow writers hone their craft. One thing I really try to honor is each author’s VOICE. Every writer is unique and has their own personal style. I just go along adding commas and so on and do my very best to leave their VOICE as intact as possible.
Linell welcomes all of you to her stories, and sincerely hopes that you enjoy reading them as much as she enjoyed writing them.
