About J.W. Lynne
Years ago, I realized that life is short and I had put most of my dreams on hold for far too long. I decided to start carrying out my bucket list and to share my experiences on this website, to help other people plan their own adventures.

I enjoyed writing about my adventures so much that I started writing screenplays and novels. I based some of my stories on my real-life experiences: visiting Japan (Lost in Tokyo), living in Southern California (Lost in Los Angeles), and working with wild and exotic animals (Wild Animal School). I also wrote a series set in a dystopian future society (Above the Sky series) that was inspired by my love of The Hunger Games (by Suzanne Collins) and Divergent (by Veronica Roth). My newest books (The Unknown and its sequel, The Haven) were loosely inspired by my love of the Netflix series Stranger Things. All of these novels are available at Amazon!

May you find inspiration in my stories, and may your own wildest dreams come true!
