For the Eleventh day of Christmas…Writer’s Style, I am happy to introduce you to Lynn Hooghiemstra. She and I met on Twitter, and were able to meet in person while I attended the RWA Conference this year. I can’t tell you what a thrill it was to meet her, it was like we were long lost, friends – and now we are! I could have stayed in that coffee shop all day, it was so fun to connect!
Lynn writes Paranormal and Sci-Fi Young Adult fiction under the pen name Nicola Adams. She also works as a Dutch translator and writes Historical Fiction under her real name. Here is a blurb from her work, Tales from the Fountain Pen:
Tales from the Fountain Pen
Maggie was ready to embrace life and enjoy attending vocational college when the war came to her village in the Netherlands and changed everything. In a series of interconnected stories Maggie struggles with fear, shortages, the resistance, the dangers of falling in love and who to trust. Nothing is as it had been and, as the holder of the fountain pen learns from her comfortable office in the present day, fear and uncertainty are ever-present companions.
As the narrator fills and refills the inherited fountain pen from the 1940s, the pen takes on a life of its own as it relates the details of the events that shaped Maggie’s life, and strengthens the bond between Maggie and her future daughter.
