Member Kris Lynn's brand new book, BLOOD STONES

The first book in Krista Lynn's trilogy, Blood Stones: The Haunting of Sunset Canyon, is now available. 

This is Kris Lynn's (Krista Lynn's) debut romantic mystery novel.  The story blends Native American Indian lore with a contemporary ghost story in the magic red rock landscape of central Arizona. "Like a spider's web, the spell of the canyon holds two families in the intertwining strands of two quests - one for gold, the other for answers to an ancient curse. After years of living under the spectre of greed and fear, will they finally unearth the truth of the treasure and face the shocking reality of their own uncanny connections to the mysterious entities who protect the secrets of Sunset Canyon?" 

Krista Lynn is a late-comer to the author’s world with a long academic career in earth sciences in her wake instead of years of fiction writing. But, wind has filled all the sails this year, with the release of Blood Stones, the first book in the Haunted Canyon Series.

It’s no mystery why Krista writes about the high desert of Arizona. She grew up on a gold mine about 60 miles north of Phoenix. The closest neighbor was 6 miles or so down the Agua Fria River, or another 20 miles by dirt road. To say it was a gold mine is technically correct, but very little gold was ever mined. It did, however, keep gas in the jeep and food on the table. The real treasure of this placer gold-mining venture was the lasting impressions of living wild on the desert with her brothers, and a menagerie of dogs, goats, and donkeys. And experiencing the magic and spirit of a rugged, isolated landscape where mysteries are carried on the wind, and whispered in your sleep. Years later, these experiences are the multi-colored threads woven into her series of romantic supernatural suspense set in the high desert of Arizona. 

She taught physical geography and GIS courses at CSUF and Fresno City College before taking an Academic Coordinator for GIS Technologies at UC Davis Cooperative Extension where she built a GIS program to assist agricultural research.

She now enjoys the full-time writing life in California with her husband and a menagerie of dogs, goats and one spoiled horse.
