ThreeandHalfStars

Storytime is a short, sweet story by K. Lynn. Middle-aged James Murphy is mourning his partner. He decides to get involved in the children’s program at the local library, just to get out of the house. There he meets David, the children’s librarian. The story’s setting is realistic as a library, which is refreshing. You wouldn’t think it would matter, but there’s some weird stuff out there. James and David are both enjoyable people. This is a May-December Romance that comes across as sweet and fun. I had to knock off some points for the brevity of the sex scene. But not too many, because what’s there is hot. I had a good time reading Storytime. I can only imagine K. Lynn’s fans will too.

AuthorBio

K. Lynn has been an avid reader and writer since childhood. In her youth, she could most likely be found in the local library, devouring books that covered everything from WWII History to Dr. McCoy’s latest adventures aboard the Enterprise, with some X-Men thrown in for good measure. Once she had read everything that was on the shelves, she turned around and read them again. K. Lynn was also known to create elaborate adventures that more than once made it to the page. Ink-filled papers gave way to overflowing computer memory as the years went on, but the stories never ceased.

While in college, K. Lynn increased her involvement in LGBT issues and writing within the LGBT fiction genre. She has become a long-time fan of the authors that seek to explore the commonality that exists within all sexualities and genders. Most of K. Lynn’s work features LGBT characters, many of whom are in established relationships and show how love perseveres through every trial and tribulation that life holds. She also has a particular interest in seeing transgender characters gain a larger foothold within the LGBT fiction genre, hoping that the market for these works expand in the future.

K. Lynn has degrees and certificates from UNC-Chapel Hill in the areas of American History, Religion, Creative Writing, Public Health, and Journalism. She is a member of Mensa and has an extensive writing and editing background. To her, life is an ongoing adventure where she seeks to learn something new every day. When K. Lynn is not writing short stories, she is working on her novels. Her interests range from erotica to education, with stops along the way in paranormal fiction, historical novels, and established relationship romance. Give her a good story and she’s willing to read.
