About the author:
Lynn Perretta has worked as a freelance writer for White Wolf Games Mage: the Ascension (revised). Her writing credits include (as Lynn Davis): Guide to the Traditions, Initiates of the Arts, Bitter Road, and Cult of Ecstasy (revised). Lynn has also written a series of articles for Polymancer Magazine titled "I Was Thinking of Making My Character...EVIL!"
Lynn graduated Georgia State University with a bachelor's in English - Creative Writing. While at Georgia State, she had the opportunity to study with incredible authors and professors. She studied different aspects of writing: creative elements of fiction and mechanical elements of technical writing and document design. She also studied web design and electronic communication.
Lynn is currently working on The Shulim Cycle, a modern dark fantasy series that ties the distant past to the present, exploring predestination, fate, and hope. The series will consist of six novels, beginning with Book of Dahlia. Each book is named for a secondary character who sets the clock of the story. Her husband Nick, who currently serves as her editor, creative consultant, manager, and agent is an invaluable companion in the project.
Lynn was born in Atlanta, Georgia. Her father was in the Navy and when she was young, she lived in Virginia Beach, where her earliest memories are of being stung by jellyfish and getting to visit the big ships. She was later raised by her mother (Melinda) and stepfather (Tim - "but I always call him 'dad'") in Mississippi. After graduating high school, she returned to her native Georgia, where she floated around the metro Atlanta area for about eighteen years. She feels that she is a southern writer in the truest sense: as with anything in the south, she writes when she gets around to it.
Lynn currently resides with her husband Nick, daughter Rebecca, and cat Boo in Clearwater, Florida.
The Shulim Cycle: Book of Dahlia
Cover design or artwork by
Eduli Springs is a quiet northern suburb of Atlanta, situated along the Chattahoochee River. It is a pleasant community of affluent neighborhoods, small businesses, and dark secrets.
Devon James is a high school senior who is changing. He's ready for the idea that life is about to different, but he's fairly certain what he's experiencing isn't the norm. He's larger, he's stronger, his eyes are even different colors - or was that just waking up? He is treated to strange dreams, new obsessions, and knowledge that he didn't have before.
Dahlia is a psychic vampire. She thrives on anonymity, feeding discreetly from the buffet of emotions that a high school cultivates. When murders begin occurring in Eduli Square, across the street from her home, that anonymity is threatened. She is also aware of the changes that Devon is going through and senses something familiar in him. Are the changes Devon is going through merely a ghost of her past, or is there something darker waking up and hungering?
