Lynn Tincher was born just outside of Louisville, Kentucky in the beautiful City of La Grange. One of her fondest memories of growing up was when her English teacher read a short story she wrote in front of the students of Oldham County High School. Since then, her love for writing blossomed. She studied Theater Arts at Eastern Kentucky University hoping to become a Drama/English teacher. Lynn had several articles published in local magazines and online, but the thought of writing a novel always stuck with her.
Inspired by Nora Roberts, JK Rowling, and Greg Isles, Lynn wrote Afterthoughts, the first book in the Mind Bending Series, a fictional psychological crime series that follows the life of a young Louisville Police detective named Paige Aldridge. Blackwyrm Fiction picked up Afterthoughts for publication in 2008. When she signed the contract, it landed Lynn on the center page for a story in Leo Weekly. Since then, Lynn released Left in the Dark, Buried Deep, Where There is Light, and the fifth book, Junna will release soon.
In 2013, the unbelievable happened. Kilted Pictures and Dancing Forward Productions in Los Angeles optioned Afterthoughts for movie production. It is currently in pre-production with plans to shoot in Louisville, Kentucky soon. With Executive Producer credits, Lynn is working hard to draw on local talent and bring the movie’s production to her much-loved city of Louisville.
Between writing Afterthoughts and Left in the Dark, doctors diagnosed Lynn with Brugada Syndrome, a rare and fatal genetic heart disease. She is determined to help spread the word about Brugada Syndrome and hopes to help others who are dealing with it or other heart diseases. Lynn was the 2014 Red Cap Ambassador for the American Heart Association Heart Walk where she was the guest speaker at several events and a runway model for the Go Red for Women luncheon.
In 2022, Lynn took over the helm of Stardust Romance as Associate Publisher. Stardust Romance is an imprint of Hydra Publications. She looks forward to helping grow this line of books for Hydra.
Lynn is actively involved in the Louisville Women in Business for Good, Louisville Chapter of the National Association of Professional Women, Greater Louisville Inc. The Louisville Film Society, the American Heart Association, and was a Champion Member of the Oldham County Chamber of Commerce. She has appeared in Today’s Woman, the Louisville Courier-Journal, Leo Weekly, Wave 3 Listens, the RoundAbout, and the Oldham Era.
Lynn now lives just outside of Louisville on a farm in Shepherdsville with her husband, Eric, where she loves to garden organically. She has three wonderful children, Emily (Stephen), Aaron (Michaela), and Becca (Vasily), four beautiful grandsons, Max, Eli, Benny, and Auggie, a gorgeous granddaughter, Audrey, and two fantastic dogs named Rey and Finn. You can’t forget the myriad of cats, goats, and a donkey.

“Well-crafted characters and plot twists will keep you turning pages.” - Brad Parnell, The Legend of Gwerinatha: Branwen’s Garden
“The relationships are believable, and the dialog is fun and easy to read.” - Michele Dutcher, Against a Diamond Sky
