Steel Journeys Origins: Part 1

S

In light of the recent health crisis and the plethora of people looking for a little distraction from life as we now know it, I’ve decided to do my part to entertain the masses a bit by publishing my rough draft musings of a Steel Journeys prequel I’ve been working on! I will try to publish a new bit every few days, depending on my work schedule, but please know that as a nurse...

The Dangers of Digital Overwhelm – Are We Changing Our Evolutionary Reactions?

T

I finally finished redecorating my office the other day. It felt somehow more “important” than the normal satisfaction I would have gained from finishing a project. In fact, hanging this particular series of paintings felt like a crucial addition, taking it from a mostly utilitarian workspace to a place where I can dream and enjoy color and put together new creative ideas that are currently...

Life in The Clouds

L

I haven’t fully relaxed in so long, I forgot how it felt. This house—and being out away from the city—is such a blessing. I feel grounded and connected to the earth as I’ve never felt before. Perhaps it’s being up high, with a bird’s eye view of the clouds as they move across the valley, how the sun kisses the ridge line and the mist hangs in the tree tops. The view changes every time I look up...

Author Interview with Serious Reading

A

A few years ago I did an interview with Seriousreading.com and I thought I would share it here. For reference, “SR:” stands for seriousreading.com and “LM:” is me. 🙂 Here is the link if you would like to view it on the Serious reading website: Interview with Lynda Meyers, author of “Finn Again” SR: What are your views about elaborate synopsis of books at the back of the...

Biker Momma Interview

B

Honored to have been interviewed by Toby Miles at Ride Like A Girl Designs for her Biker Momma Vlog Series. This was my first video interview so I was a little nervous, but if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to just sit down and have a chat with me in my living room, this is basically it! We talk about how I started riding, riding with my kids, being a nurse who rides, and lots of...

Newly Released Editions for Truly and Finn

N

I’m so excited to be working with the amazing Jane Dixon-Smith to create new cover designs for my first three books! Aren’t they gorgeous? I’ve released new editions of Truly and Finn’s stories as companion novels. I actually wrote Truly’s story first, but was so curious about Finn’s story that I wrote a book about him too! Chronologically Finn is the prequel...

Audio Books – the “.Wave” of the Future!

A

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a monster commute. Rather than listening to the same songs play over and over again on the radio, I pass the time listening to podcasts and audio books. I’ve also recently purchased a set of Sony noise cancelling headphones that have literally changed my life and my workflow. Turns out I’m really sensitive to noise, and these babies have made my...

The Art of Pilgrimage

T

“Pilgrimage is a metaphor for any journey with the purpose of finding something that matters deeply to the traveler.” ~ Phil Cousineau I picked up a book during my travels in Nepal. This is nothing new. I am always buying books, especially when I travel. If something catches my eye, or my heart – it becomes a sort of verbal souvenir. I’ve also found that many times, local shops in foreign...

Steel Journeys – Coming Soon!

S

Finally! A motorcycle novel with a woman at the controls! Book 1 in the Steel Journeys series is finished and Book 2 is right on it’s heels! Here’s a bit about the series: To some people home might be wherever you lay your helmet, but for Abby Steel, home was wherever she laid her ass. Today it’s a Harley. Tomorrow it might be a BMW or a Triumph or a Honda. Home was whatever bike fit...

What If? (Thoughts on an Interconnected Life)

W

What if… Freedom meant truth. Truth meant contentment. Contentment allowed sleep. Sleep meant rest. Rest meant communion. Communion meant intimacy. Intimacy meant peace. Peace meant balance. Balance meant growth. Growth meant life. Life meant light. Light meant everything… What if…?   – Lynda Meyers, 2011   This is is a series of thoughts I wrote back in 2011...

My Brand Is Human

M

I keep thinking back over my years of blogging, trying to recapture some of the vigor with which I used to send my words out into the digital stratosphere. Back in 2006, when I first started blogging, I never combed the internet looking for relevant tidbits to comment on or build a blog post around, I just lived life and tried to engage with my kids, and I blogged my way through, trying to...

Question of the Day: What’s The Best Thing About Being A Writer?

Q

I think it was Flannery O’Connor who said: “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” I feel a lot the same way. I’ve journaled ever since I can remember, and whenever the world gets confusing or I don’t know how I’m feeling, that’s what I do. Early on, these were little more than letters to God as I understood them. As I understood *him*. Somehow, by the end...

Letters From The Ledge – The Unpublished Entries

L

This journal entry never made it into the finished manuscript for Letters From The Ledge: “There he is again – right on schedule. It must be a ritual or something. I don’t think he can see me, even with the glow of my light-up pen on the page. It’s strange to wonder what he must be thinking about up there… I mean, we see the same stars, right? Maybe not. Maybe my blue is his green...

It takes a village. And some hobbits. – Thoughts on being a grandma

I

This little slice of heaven was born last week. I’m not sure what I thought it would be like before it happened, but I sure have a few thoughts to share after the fact. Let me explain. I mean, on the one hand, being a grandma doesn’t actually feel a whole lot different than not being a grandma. Kind of like when you have a birthday. From one day to the next the number might change, but you...
