Generation X is in a unique position. Sandwiched in between two larger generations, Baby Boomers and Millennials, we have carved out a niche that allows us to function in both an analog and digital world.
To that end, I have joined TikTok, where I have found a community of artists and authors who are pursuing their passion and making a name for themselves.
I am happy to spotlight the first of what I hope to be many wonderfully talented and gifted writers and their latest novel you should put on your list of must-read books.
Lynn Lipinski is a writer who channels an overactive imagination into fictional worlds where justice rules, karma is real and the good person comes out on top. Her second book, “God of the Internet,” was named to Kirkus Reviews Best Indie Books of 2016 list.
Her Zane Clearwater mystery series (“Bloodlines” and “Serpent Loop”) are set in her hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, which also happens to be her favorite place to write about. Decades of living in Los Angeles have worn away the Okie accent but not the Oklahoma girl’s heart. She earned a master’s degree in creative writing from Mount St. Mary’s University in 2018. She is currently working on her third novel in the Zane Clearwater mystery series.
Her latest book is Serpent Loop, published in October 2022. Witnessing a murder at the carnival he works for was a painful reminder of Zane Clearwater’s dark past. He had hoped all that was behind him, but one look at the fear on his sister Lettie’s face and he’s right back in the thick of it. Even if it means jeopardizing his dream of becoming a police officer, he’s desperate to protect her at all costs.
Unfortunately, that may be harder than anticipated. Zane knew Lettie was a whiz with a computer, yet he had no idea she was putting some of those skills to work on the dark web in questionable schemes that have landed her in serious trouble.
Zane has a slew of questions. As do the police…and the FBI.
When Lettie takes off for California, Zane embarks on a journey of discovery that will test the limits of their unbreakable bond. Can he keep the promise he made to himself and protect Lettie? Or is this one mess she will have to face on her own?
