Connect with J.W. LYNNE on

Years ago, I realized that life is short, and I had put my dreams on hold for far too long. I didn't want to reach the end of my life regretting all the things that I'd never done, and so I decided to start carrying out my bucket list. This website was originally created as a place to share my experiences, to help other people plan their own adventures.

I enjoyed writing about my adventures so much that I ended up doing something I never dreamed I'd do. From the time I was very young, I've loved reading books, and so I decided to try my hand at writing one. It turned out to be one of the most exciting and satisfying things I've ever done in my life.

I now have eleven published novels. Some are based on my real-life experiences, like living in Southern California and working with wild and exotic animals. Others are set in fictional worlds. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that carrying out my bucket list would lead me where it has, but I feel like I have finally made it to where I was always meant to be.

May my stories inspire you to make your own dreams come true!
