Sabrina Flynn is an American author that writes both fantasy and mystery novels. Flynn is best known for ‘Legends of Frysta’ and ‘Ravenwood Mysteries’.

+Biography
Sabrina Flynn has been writing for as long as she can remember. The activity was first sparked by her passion for books. She remembers reading the likes of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ by J.R.R. Tolkien and ‘Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn’ by Tad Williams.

She was drawn to magical settings and strong heroes and heroines. Somewhere along the way, the writing bug bit her. She spent her teenage years filling entire notebooks with the ramblings of her mind.

Though, in truth, the author wouldn’t necessarily call her teenage years healthy. A lot of aspiring authors wish that they could disappear into the fantastical worlds their minds create.

But Sabrina didn’t have to try too hard to disappear into her imagination. As a growing girl, she remembers falling prey to a dissociative fog, one that rendered her numb to the world around her.

She spent so many years nurturing a withdrawn mindset, simply drifting through the world, unable to fully appreciate the experiences around her because she couldn’t quite escape her mind.

Sabrina Flynn admits that she often looked to the spaces in her mind for an escape. She would create characters, people that were so much more real to her than the actual living, breathing bodies she encountered on a daily basis; figures that she eventually came to perceive as guardians, the heroes who could protect her where others had so thorough failed.

When Flynn began to write, it was with the intention of finally escaping the very imagination within which she had initially sought sanctuary. Flynn doesn’t really remember the exact period in which she took up the writing habit.

One day she wasn’t writing, and the next day she couldn’t keep her hands still as they tore across the empty pages of her notebooks. At first, for Flynn, the writing was merely a tool she used to explore her trauma.

Writing allowed her to poke and prod from a distance those aspects of her life that she would have preferred to avoid. Over time, the activity pulled Flynn out of her shell. She was able to overcome the trauma and the shock and the despair of her existence to find her true voice.

And with that discovery of her voice, Flynn finally saw the opportunities that publishing had to offer.

Interestingly enough, when Sabrina Flynn finally sat down to produce her own original fiction, the impetus that drove her to take that route was the absence of inspiring fantasy on the shelves of bookstores.

Flynn read a string of fantasy novels that failed to inspire her. Not only did they feature depressing storylines but they were sorely lacking in heroes that Flynn could support.

The author always read fantasy because of the sense of whimsy that it brought to her life. She enjoyed exploring the complicated lives of underdog heroes fighting to save the world from immovable threats.

She loved cheering for these strong but vulnerable boys and girls who refused to bow down in the face of impossible odds. And yet, a time came when every hero in every fantasy novel Sabrina Flynn read made her skin crawl.

This experience began to extinguish the author’s desire to read; so she decided to write her own fantasy, stories that she could enjoy. In the beginning, Flynn wrote for herself. She had no intention of exposing her writings to any other soul.

But then, many years later, Flynn joined a fanfiction community on the internet. Circumstances drove a professional editor to Flynn; the editor asked if she could read some of the author’s original work.

The feedback Flynn received was quite positive and it was at that point that she realized that the stories she wrote had the potential to entertain other readers. She began to seriously court publishing, eventually bringing the Frysta fantasy novels to the masses.

Flynn is an organic writer. Rather than plotting and outlining her books beforehand, she prefers to simply sit down, write and then wait to see where the story will take her. Of course, Flynn doesn’t sit down to write until she has a vague idea of the direction her story might take.

But for the most part, Flynn gives her imagination the freedom to mold her characters and her plots into whatever form and shape they desire. The author loves creating new characters and settings.

And when it comes to fantasy, she especially enjoys creating creatures. Every once in a while, the author will augment her writing process with music, but only if she can find a song that best suits the story she wants to tell.

But for the most part, music throws her off. So she is more likely to write in silence.

+From the Ashes
Atticus Riot and his partner were a great team in San Francisco in the 1900s. But then the man died. Atticus did not escape unscathed. He took a bullet to the head. But the physical injury was incomparable to the mental trauma.

Three years later, Atticus Riot is back in San Francisco. The mental and physical therapy has mostly dragged him back to his feet but he isn’t quite ready to return to detective work.

But when an heiress is abducted, Atticus jumps into the fray. The haunted detective can tell that the heiress’ husband is hiding something. Atticus is determined to resolve the situation because he knows that failure would strand him with the sort of guilt from which he would never recover.

+A Bitter Draught
Isobel Kingston and Atticus Riot became acquainted when Isobel was abducted. Atticus came out of pseudo-retirement following the death of his partner to find Isobel and solve the mystery of her abduction.

Now everyone thinks that Isobel is dead. But she is very much alive. She has stepped out of the shadows to look into the mystery of a woman who wrote her last words in sand. Waiting for her ahead is a world of danger and betrayal, and Atticus Riot isn’t too far behind.
