Love is a Dangerous Mystery! Enjoy the Ride.                

Hi! I’m Lynda Rees. I write what I loved to read – romance with a hint of danger, mystery and history. Food my literary fodder includes gold mining and coal mining, mobsters, the wild west, Alaska, horses, dogs, fishing, water sports, racing and breeding.  History helps frame our lives today and fascinates me. My husband and I share our Kentucky horse farm with our family of critters that continues to grow.

Flowering Bell Close 05 2013

I have many faces, constantly juggling multiple priorities. A story teller at every opportunity, I’m dreaming and writing blessings into my life. These phenomenal people are my most prized blessings.

Learning to read at the age of five by grandpa Daddy Lida’s side, stories thread throughout every aspect of my life. I’m blessed with my dreams coming true–my amazing husband, Mike, my son Michael, my daughter Brandy and their loving spouses Renee and John. They’ve blessed me with three grandchildren–Harley, Hunter and Easton–the loves of my life.

My inspiration for love, my dear grandparents, Mom and Daddy Lida.

I am a dreamer whose dreams come true. I dreamed of an incredible man to share my life; two blonde, blue-eyed babies; and a horse farm in Kentucky filled with family, fun, critters, and laughter. I share my life with my hero, my strength, the love of my life, my loving and supportive husband, Mike. Whatever crazy adventure I conger up, he is right by my side. We share our Kentucky farm with our family of critters, that continues to grow if nothing else does.

His tractor is sexy!

My diverse background brings perspective and insight into life, playing out in my writing. Born in the splendor of the Appalachian Mountains, I’m a coal miner’s daughter and part Cherokee. My father instilled in me a strong work ethic and determination to achieve my goals. Growing up in the area where the Mob reigned supreme in Newport, Kentucky and the city prospered as a mecca for gambling, prostitution and sin, I can’t help my fascination with it.

I am a free spirited adventurer and a fun loving gal, with workaholic tendencies.

Writing has brought m extraordinary experiences, opened worldwide doors and taken me to exotic locations I never dreamed to set foot in. Traveling the world, enjoying wonderful cultures flavors my work.

So many stories swirl in my head at any given time, as I drift to sleep each night, they brand themselves in my subconscious, eager to find their way onto written pages. I can’t wait to share them with you.

I hope you find something that speaks to your heart!

Time for Romance!

Lynda Rees,

Love is a Dangerous Mystery. Enjoy the Ride!
