Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Beth Lynn and I am a teen author from South Florida. So far I have written 2 out of three books in the Glacier Trilogy. Glacier and Glacier: The Other Side follows the life of teen violinist Carly who wants to pursue a life in music. A boarding school known as Glacier gives her the opportunity to do just that. There’s only one catch. She has to become a vampire and leave behind everything she knows.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Glacier: The Other Side has similar inspiration to that of Glacier, the first book. I like to explore the pros and cons of following a dream or passion. Are all the sacrifices worth it? Why or why not?
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I usually don’t outline before I write. I have the idea in my head and try to get it out on paper. No matter how messy my first draft is, I keep writing until I finish. Then I go back and edit.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
JK Rowling, Stephanie Myers, and PC Cast
What are you working on now?
Glacier Volume 3
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?

Do you have any advice for new authors?
Technically, I’m a new author. My first book was published this year. My advice for aspiring authors is to not worry about style or content, but just get the words down on the paper. They can go back and edit later.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Take advantage of your education and resources.
What are you reading now?
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
What’s next for you as a writer?
I wanted to finish and publish the final Glacier novel before I graduate high school.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Books on survival. That just seems smart.
