Lynn's an "in-between." Not a child, not an adult-even if she does have a real job in a department store. In fact, her life isn't interesting at all, untilthe day she trips and bumps her head on a Chicago sidewalk. Plunged headlong into the world of Tarth and a vicious warbetween theevil sorcerer, Gefcla, and the kindly Stallis, Lynn decides she should try to fulfill a prophetic rhyme from Keshua, the Healer. Only she can't let anyone else know, or they might try to stop her.
S. G. BYRD majored in English and Religion at Duke University. My father read The Hobbit to me when I was eight and sick with the measles, she says. My own three children grew up reading C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and George MacDonald, just as I had. I wondered, If I was to make up a world, what would it look like? Over the next ten years, the Tarth series emerged.
Look for Book Two, Under the Golden Mists, soon.

Tell us a little about yourself. I love hiking in the mountains, building fires and reading by them, romping with dogs, watching horses, making quilts, cooking fun things, playing games.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wrote the type of story that I have always enjoyed reading. My motivation was to serve other people by providing them with a fun read within a Christian worldview. I was responding to God's command to love each other--using the strengths and abilities that He gave me.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope they will identify with the characters and the problems they have, so that they can also identify with the triumphs/life lessons that the characters have. Also, I hope folks will just plain enjoy themselves.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? There have been times when I remembered something from a book that encouraged or directed me. It was very helpful, and only afterwards did I realize it was from one of my own stories--strange, but true!
